investing in the future of cybersecurity
SVCI is a group of Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) that operates as an angel investor syndicate. Our mission is to fuel the next generation of cybersecurity innovation by identifying promising early-stage startups, investing in them, and using our unmatched industry expertise to help them thrive.
Who we are
We are a close-knit group of leading cybersecurity professionals from various industries and companies across the US. We came together to form SVCI because we're passionate about early-stage technology and its ability to solve complex challenges. We already play a big role in the industry as thought leaders and buyers, but we are well aware that this is not enough. We're excited to be actively involved in shaping the next generation of cybersecurity solutions through personal investments and mentorship.
As a group, SVCI is built on the following pillars:
Our members are seasoned and senior security leaders with deep domain expertise. Each of us has a proven executive track record and has evaluated, purchased, and used hundreds of cybersecurity solutions.
We bring in perspectives from various sectors spanning Fortune 500 companies and fast-moving unicorns. This uniquely positions us to understand the cybersecurity market and advise companies operating in it.
Since our members are personally invested through SVCI, they go to great lengths to see SVCI founders thrive post-investment. Our vast coverage includes the likes of group ideation, 1:1 feedback, networking, and more.
