MACH37

MACH37 is America’s premier market-centric cybersecurity accelerator. The Accelerator is designed to facilitate the creation of the next generation of cybersecurity product companies. MACH37’’s unique program design places heavy emphasis on the validation of product ideas and the development of relationships that produce an initial customer base and investment capital. MACH37 is located at the Center for Innovative Technology. The Accelerator is operated by the MACH37 partners. Mach 37 refers to “escape velocity,” the minimum velocity needed to escape earth’s gravitational field.  We felt that this was an apt term for our accelerator, because newly launched technology companies must push past forces that inherently prevent their growth.
