London, UK, 8th June – OutThink, the cybersecurity start-up behind the world’s first Predictive Human Risk Intelligence Platform (SaaS), has announced that it has been accepted onto the Microsoft for Startups programme. Having been identified as a potential high-growth start-up, OutThink will be given access a broad range of software benefits, including $25,000 worth of Azure cloud credits, and receive advice and support from Microsoft as it looks to scale.
The programme hand picks companies that Microsoft deems to have excellent growth prospects, aiming to specifically promote B2B tech start-ups, which attracted greater levels of funding than their consumer counterparts in 2019 for the first time in a decade. Previous members of the programme include Element AI and Microshare.
“It is a great honour to be accepted onto the programme and recognised by Microsoft,” said Flavius Plesu, founder and CEO of OutThink. “Getting this kind of backing really validates what we are trying to do as a company and will allow us to continue to innovate in the cybersecurity space. I am looking forward to working more closely with Microsoft and reaping the benefits of its knowledge of the start-ups sphere.”
Founded by a team of four CISOs and an esteemed university professor, OutThink provides an enterprise Human Risk Intelligence SaaS Platform aimed at providing large, global organisations with a complete view of their risk posture down to individual employee level. Based in London, UK, OutThink is an alumni of TechNation, LORCA and CyLon accelerators and recognised by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) as one most innovative cybersecurity start-ups in the UK.
