CyberTECH has established a National Community focused on cybersecurity and Internet of Things technologies. A recent study conducted by Cisco estimates that more than 50 billion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020. The key to our success is developing our economy and workforce for what is next. Through various programs, we aim to accelerate economic development and position ourselves as a world leader in cybersecurity and the emerging Internet of Things.
Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR)
California’s tech-inspired startups drive many of today’s hottest and most innovative products and services, helping to further position the state as the global center for excellence in Cybersecurity, Internet of Things and Emerging Technologies such as drones, blockchain, robotics, and 3D printing.
In that spirit, CyberTECH is proud to announce the CyberTECH Entrepreneur in Residence (EIR) — a six-month, low-rent program designed to build strategic relationships between early-stage companies and CyberTECH’s growing ecosystem of partners and stakeholders.
Locally owned and managed coworking spaces have a flexibility in contracting you won’t find in with larger companies. Temporary holds, upgrades, downgrades, and additional desks are easy changes to your current lease. In other words, you won’t be nickel-and-dimed by a local coworking company. You will also find that the smaller, local company will provide more freebies like conference room use, beverage services, and printing.
Smart and Safe Cities Insititute
Leveraging many years of effort in the Internet of Things (IoT), CyberTECH has developed the Smart & Safe Cities Institute, focusing on the state of smart & safe cities, best practices, the cultural aspects of creating safe cities, including elements of Smart Cities and IoT that make people nervous about connecting wearables, “liveables” and “driveables” to the Internet to form smart cities.
The CyberCalifornia initiative will help further position California as a leader in cybersecurity as it relates to commerce and Internet of Things (IoT) technology. CyberCalifornia will advance the goals and promote the accomplishments of the California Cybersecurity Task Force, with a particular emphasis on the connections between cybersecurity and economic development. CyberCalifornia will help organize public-private partnerships in cybersecurity, with the goals of facilitating research and innovation in cybersecurity, educating California businesses about cybersecurity needs and resources, and connecting California’s robust workforce development system with the needs of California employers.
