The 10 finalists will each have three minutes to make their case for being the most innovative, promising young security company of the year.
For 14 years, 10 companies have taken the stage at the RSA Conference to make their case for the most promising, innovative technology. Now, the conference has named the 10 finalists for the RSA Innovation Sandbox presentations that will give venture capitalists, investors, competitors, and conference attendees the chance to see some of the latest in technology from these young companies.
The RSAC Innovation Sandbox gives each participant 3 minutes — no more — to make their presentation. In that time, they must sell both the product or service and their company with what is typically a well-rehearsed, finely honed, and frequently high-speed spiel. This year, the Sandbox’s 15th, the presentations will take place at the Moscone Center beginning at 1:30 p.m. PST. By 4:30 p.m. that same day, one company will be preparing to celebrate.
According to RSAC, the 140 previous finalists in the Innovation Sandbox have collectively seen 48 acquisitions and raised $5.2 billion in investments. The question is how much the ten companies on the list that follows will add to those totals.
