On December 1, 2017, the founding incubator StartUpSecure started at CRISP. The incubator, which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), aims to support young companies in the field of IT security. The incubator supports contributions to cyber security from the idea phase to the development of marketable products and the establishment of companies. The aim is to use CRISP's expertise and experience in an incubator for cyber security to initiate targeted activities to increase the number and improve the quality of start-ups. The incubator offers developers and potential founders a wide range of services and support with specific reference to cyber security. StartUpSecure works closely with the Innovation and Start-up Centre HIGHEST of the TU Darmstadt and the Digital Hub Cybersecurity.
