Ballistic Ventures Launches BallisticX to Propel Early-stage Cybersecurity Startups
Ballistic Ventures, the venture capital firm dedicated exclusively to funding and incubating entrepreneurs and innovations in cybersecurity, today announced the launch of BallisticX, a new platform for portfolio companies. BallisticX includes the appointment of a distinguished advisory board, as well as services to help early-stage startup founders and their teams advance their businesses and cybersecurity.
"Capital alone is not enough. Young companies with new innovations need strategic advisors, design partners and a network of people who have lived their challenges. They also need access to curated, low-touch, high-impact services and support to help them build and grow fast," said Ted Schlein, Chairman and General Partner of Ballistic Ventures. "BallisticX is our commitment, beyond capital, to ensuring our portfolio companies have the team and resources they need to make an impact."
Ballistic's new advisory board includes some of the most respected leaders in cybersecurity. Their experience will help influence Ballistic's investments, guide portfolio companies in their growth, unite a new network of cybersecurity leaders and much more. The advisory board includes:
"This prestigious group of advisors is a critical step for Ballistic in cementing our position as the premier venture fund for entrepreneurs on the cutting edge of cybersecurity," added Schlein. "Each of our members brings with them unmatched experience and invaluable expertise in a variety of essential domains. We look forward to benefiting from their wise counsel, and we're thankful to have them alongside us as we help entrepreneurs define their ideas, scale their businesses, and make the world a safer place."
