The DataTribe Challenge: What could your company do with $2 million?

August 4, 2022

DataTribe, a global cyber foundry that invests in and co-builds next-generation cybersecurity and data science companies, recently announced the launch of its fifth-annual DataTribe Challenge. The competition is poised to identify and curate Pre-Series A, high-technology start-ups with a vision to disrupt cybersecurity and data science.

Three finalists will split $20,000 in prize money, and one winner will be eligible to receive up to $2 million in seed capital from DataTribe.

“Over the last five years, the Challenge has evolved into an excellent platform for entrepreneurs to not only get exposure and feedback — but to actually fundraise. For the winner, it could take care of their entire seed round. We’re always humbled by the quality of submissions — as founders look over the horizon to chart the future of cyber. The Challenge is a lot of fun and we look forward to working with participants.” said John Funge, Managing Director of DataTribe.
