Innovation Sandbox Contest

Great ideas start in the sandbox. The RSAC Innovation Sandbox, that is. 

Marriott Marquis - Yerba Buena Ballroom
April 16, 2018 from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM

RSAC’s Innovation Sandbox Contest brings out cybersecurity’s boldest new innovators who have made it their mission to take down infosec risk.

What’s at stake? Well, in addition to a brag-worthy trophy, over the past five years, the contest’s top 10 finalists have received over $1.12 billion in investments. To see what these winners bring to the cybersecurity table and how they’ve fared over the past 12 years, head over to the Gallery of Victors.

Think your company has what it takes? Online submissions open on January 8, 2018 and close on February 9, 2018.

• Launched after January 2017
• Matches an identified problem in the information security marketplace
• Takes an original and sound approach to solving a problem

2. Have a rock star company who:

• Has a management team with a track record of successfully delivering products to market
• Can deliver the product to market
• Is privately owned with less than $5M in revenue in 2017

4.  Review and notification process:

• All entries are reviewed and ranked by a panel of judges that include venture capital professionals, CISOs and other outstanding industry experts.
• The lucky top 10 finalists will be notified mid-March 2018.

5. Prepare and present:
