Titan IC Systems (www.titanicsystems.com) - a pioneer in cyber-security and a spin-out out of Queens University Belfast’s (QUB) world-class Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) has been selected as one of the UK’s 12 "most exciting" technology start-ups and will pitch their business at Number 10 Downing Street.

Pitch 10 launched last year as an initiative “to shine a spotlight on the breadth of innovation in the UK” and to help connect early-stage growth businesses with prospective partners. 

The companies chosen for this year’s Pitch 10, produced in association with Tech City UK and Tech Nation, were selected by a panel of industry experts including Eileen Burbidge of Passion Capital, Gerard Grech of Tech City UK, and Baroness Martha Lane-Fox; co-founder of Lastminute.com and the quality of entrants was said to be so high that 12 businesses were chosen instead of 10.

The pitches will take place at Number 10 this Friday 20 February with businesses taking part in roundtable session to discuss TechNation and the tech clusters hosted by Gerard Grech, TechCity UK CEO and Daniel Korski, Special Adviser to the Prime Minister. Each company will give a 3-minute pitch to an audience of VCs, investors and corporate representatives.

Godfrey Gaston, CEO of Titan IC said: "With the Pitch 10 invite, it is great to see that cyber security is being considered as exciting and innovative from a UK-wide perspective, and that Titan IC and the strength of the work being done in CSIT is being recognised”.
