Is your startup creating innovative solutions for cybersecurity or privacy challenges? Are you looking for visibility, coaching and connections? Then make sure you save the date for the PwC Cybersecurity & Privacy Days on 20, 21, 27 and 28 October, 2021!

As always, these events occur within the framework of Cybersecurity Week, designed to position Luxembourg as a leading European location for cybersecurity startups, talent, investors and experts who are looking for growth opportunities. By attending this event your startup will gain valuable insights from the latest international trends in cybersecurity and privacy, network with experts in the industry and have the chance to pitch your startup.

Apply to pitch!

One of the most exciting aspects of the PwC Cybersecurity & Privacy Days is the Pitching competition, which has grown in size and stature over the years. Startups will battle it out to win The Cybersecurity Solution of the Year Award, which also comes with a host of opportunities such as coaching and media exposure.

In addition, the startup pitching will get their startup idea in front of more than 200 people including CISOs, DPOs, CIOs, CROs and VCs of major companies from Luxembourg and abroad.

Here are some of the benefits of taking part:

  • Pitch your solution and gain credibility with international investors and corporate stakeholders
  • Increase your visibility through international media exposure
  • Benefit from professional coaching by the PwC team
  • Be part of a well-known European-level event in Cybersecurity & Privacy (Cybersecurity Week Luxembourg 2021)

The Cybersecurity Solution of the Year Award will be decided by the Jury, and awarded to the candidate that demonstrates excellence at all levels, from strategy to execution during the Gala Dinner on 28 October.

Koen Maris, Cybersecurity Leader, PwC Luxembourg says about the event: “One only has to pick up any paper or go online to see that the current wave of attacks is increasingly making companies victims, citizens casualties and holding privacy hostage. Ransomware, cyberattacks, supply-chain attacks and phishing – these are just some of the security and privacy challenges that need to be addressed. This year we are really looking for well considered solutions as we move further into a world of remote work and inter connectivity where privacy has become a commodity, hackers are growing bolder in their hunt for unauthorised access and individuals and companies need to collect, store and share their data in a more intelligent way.”

Berlin-based healthtech startup Lykon raises €6.4 million and acquires AI Gaia Nutrition

Published

on

HealthTech startup Lykon has raised €6.4 million in its Pre-Series A funding round, led by MA Ventures, the venture capital fund of the Migros Aare cooperative (managed by Redstone), and IPPEN.MEDIA, a big German media house with one of the largest online media networks. Also joining this round were other investors such as family offices and business angels.

In addition to the fresh funds, Lykon has acquired Gaia Nutrition, one of the technology leaders for personalized nutrition plans. The acquisition was closed earlier this year, strengthening its authority in data-driven personalisation of food products and nutrition recommendations.

Founded in 2015, Lykon is Germany’s market leader for personalized nutrition concepts based on certified blood and DNA tests. Supported by machine learning and artificial intelligence, Lykon provides users with customized nutritional recommendations, recipes, products and a guidance for better health.

Benefitting from people’s increased awareness of health issues and increased openness to self-testing, in recent months the startup has substantially expanded its customer base.

Lykon’s founder and CEO Tobias Teuber commented on the new funding round: “Our new investors are a perfect fit at this stage of our company’s growth, as they not only bring us funding, but also provide us with expertise and access to new distribution channels and markets. This will take us even closer to our goal of making 100 million people healthier thanks to customized nutrition.”

The new funds will be used to continue to improve the customer journey and develop the technology. A further Series A financing round is envisaged for the end of 2021/early 2022.
