The Mach37 Cyber Accelerator has opened up its applications period for its fall 2015 cohort beginning Sept. 8, 2015.

The Mach37 program is a public-private and market-centric cybersecurity accelerator, located in Herndon, Va., at the Center of Innovative Technology. 

Made up of two 90-day sessions per year, the program is designed to fuel disruptive cybersecurity concepts and is tailored to each cohort, focusing on launching successful cyber startups.

Participants receive a $50,000 investment to develop and launch their ideas into the market.

In a release, the program said it is looking for candidates that:

  • Are building a disruptive information security technology product
  • Have the will and endurance to turn their labor into commercial success
  • Need help with startup capital, introductions, and navigating pitfalls
  • Are seeking rapid growth through venture capital
  • Are willing to be in Virginia for the entire 90-day program and commit to the venture full time
  • Are ideally comprised of a team of 2-4 people

Participants are encouraged to apply by June 1.
