More about the Conference

Invest in Cyber is the only French business convention dedicated to major investments in the cyber security industry. The year 2015 will thus mark its 1st edition under the impetus of the Cyber Cluster of Excellence and the Images & Réseaux Cluster, as well as all the partners. The objective is to bring together investors, major principals and innovative players in cybersecurity.

Organized over 1.5 days during the Rennaise Digital Opportunities, Invest in Cyber aims to centralize the strategic investment opportunities of the cybersecurity industry by facilitating the meeting of investors with national experts in the sector (entrepreneurs, industry experts and analysts).

Emerging companies seeking funds will thus be able to compete with national investors and potential partners in order to accelerate the development of their business.

Invest in Cyber will feature leading speakers from leading companies in the industry who will provide participants with first-class market data and share information on cybersecurity issues.

Co-organized by the Pôle d’Excellence cyber, the Pôle de compétitivité Images et Réseaux, Bretagne Développement Innovation, the MEITO, Télécom Bretagne, the CCI of Rennes, BPI France, Rennes Atalante, Irisa and INRIA with the support of the French Tech Rennes, Rennes Métropole and all the Breton and Loire technopoles, the event will take place at INRIA Rennes on 14 and 15 October 2018.
