DataTribe, the Maryland-based cyber security foundry, continues to catalyze disruptive innovation in cyber security and data sciences with its second annual "DataTribe Challenge". This year, three finalists have been selected from hundreds of submissions from 10 countries to compete for $2M in seed capital and a partnership with DataTribe. As part of DataTribe, last year's winner, Prevailion, went on to secure a $10M Series A financing (led by AllegisCyber) just months after their debut at the 2018 Challenge.
20% of the submissions for this year's Challenge came from start-ups based in Silicon Valley.
The DataTribe Challenge is a global competition to identify and develop high-technology startups with a vision to disrupt cybersecurity and data science. This year’s challenge received hundreds of submissions from a wide-range of companies – more than double that participated in 2018.
