Summer is here, and things are heating up at YL Ventures.
First of all, we are very proud to announce our new portfolio company, Vulcan Cyber!
Vulcan Cyber closes the “Vulnerability Remediation Gap,” making it possible for companies to fix critical vulnerabilities within hours instead of months. YL Venture’s managing partner, Yoav Leitersdorf attributes his excitement about the product and team (consisting of Yaniv Bar Dayan, Tal Morgenstern, and Roy Horev) to “a combination of the founders’ incredible talent and the market’s crying need for their solution.”
We also have some exciting upcoming events in Tel Aviv. June 17th marks the official start of CyberWeek 2018 at Tel Aviv University. YL Ventures will be there all week, but the real action will start Wednesday the 20th. Starting at 4:30 PM, we will be hosting our Startup CyberStorm event, where 3 promising cybersecurity startups will pitch their ideas to a panel of international experts, who will then provide additional advice and feedback.
Additionally, we will be partnering with Momentum Cyber to put on an exclusive Fireside Chat on Wednesday, June 20th, 7:30 PM. YL Venture’s Managing Partner, Yoav Leitersdorf will moderate a panel of distinguished international cybersecurity experts, including: Dave DeWalt (Founder Nightdragon, Chairman, Momentum Cyber), Justin Somaini (CSO of SAP) ; Andy Ellis (CSO of Akamai); Eric McAlpine (Managing Partner, Momentum Cyber); and Galina Antova, Co-Founder & Chief Business Development Officer, Claroty).
