Former executives from US-CERT, Trend Micro, and Booz-Allen Hamilton have teamed up to form a new venture to back cybersecurity startups.
Washington, DC-based Strategic Cyber Ventures (SCV) LLC, is looking to invest in companies that have built next-generation security technology that better defends against advanced attackers than existing products and technologies, according to its founders.
“We’re not an incubator or a VC. We’re more of an accelerator,” says Tom Kellermann, co-founder and CEO of SCV. Kellermann, the former chief cybersecurity officer at Trend Micro, says SCV has a major benefactor behind it, Hudson Bay Capital.
