« I am very pleased to welcome the 11 selected startups who will give life to the Thales’s cybersecurity programme. As a recognised expert in cybersecurity, Thales has now the challenge to make this programme successful creating new opportunities for the start-ups but also for the Group. As cybersecurity is a prerequisite for any digital transformation, we have a great playground to reach our goal: co-develop the most innovative cybersecurity solutions. »

Patrice Caine, Chairman of Thales
Step 1
Each season revolves around challenges related to cybersecurity, reported by the Group's teams. We take care to establish a balanced set of startups, covering the entire cybersecurity value chain, while ensuring that no startup is in direct competition with another from the previous season.
Step 2
In order to find the best opportunities, we facilitate dialogue and exchanges between startups and Thales. In this way, each startup discovers the Group's relevant activities, and the Thales’ teams reinforce their understanding and their confidence in the startups’ solutions and their ways of working. This step will lead to definition of a PoC aiming to illustrate a strong and unique value proposition on couse case in relation with Thales business lines activities.
Step 3
For the most promising opportunities, joint developments between Thales and startups lead to concrete demonstrations. These valuable proofs are put in broad visibility through industry exhibitions and Demo Day, in which hundreds of customers and partners of the Group are invited. Desirability tests are made with PoCs with early adopters representing the potential targetted market. Validated solutions can be presented on Thales Trustnest Market place. They can be integrated inside THALES offers to be sold to its customers.
Step 4
Together, we create long-term partnerships and make live each startup’s promotion through our Alumni network. We also facilitate collaborations between startups during the programme and beyond.
