WEBCAST INFORMATION is sponsoring another series of Shark Fest events where companies can pitch their capabilities to a panel of government and commercial  technology experts. Topics can range from artificial intelligence to digital transformation to cybersecurity to any great technology idea.

If you've nearly perfected an innovation or business process that would revolutionize a technology application or you've thought about starting your own company, this is your chance to present your concept, product, or solution and get advice from experts. Participating in the Cybersecurity TV Shark Fest is a great way to hear from experienced entrepreneurs and other business professionals as well as to gain visibility through this ongoing series of live webcasts on Cybersecurity TV.

Each episode features several companies that each have five minutes each to give their pitch and then respond to five minutes of judges questions.

Many organizations that have won or presented in these past competitions on Cybersecurity TV to gain exposure, have gone on to win new contracts, raise a round of capital or have had their companies successfully acquired. If you’re interested in having your company present in this new all virtual Cybersecurity Shark Fest series, click here.

Separate sponsorship opportunities for those companies interested in being featured in an interview during the program to gain exposure are available by clicking here.

Thanks for watching Cybersecurity TV.
