The Lean LaunchPad (LLP) Singapore: Cybersecurity Track is a 10-week experiential learning programme focused on commercialization of potential cybersecurity technological innovation, organized by NUS Enterprise in partnership with Singapore Cybersecurity Consortium and supported by the National Research Foundation (NRF) and the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA).

Adjunct Prof. Virginia Cha of NUS Business School designs and delivers the Lean LaunchPad curriculum for the Cybersecurity Track. Prof. Abhik Roychoudhury, Academic Director of the Consortium, curates the cybersecurity content with contributions from experts in the Consortium community.

We are also delighted to see members of the Consortium actively contributing in the role of mentors to startups, including Eugene Aseev (Acronis), Gil Gilad (Custodio Technologies), and David Ong (Attila Cybertech). One of Consortium's seed projects, undertaken by Cloak, is taking part in the learning journey as well!
