THALES HAS WELCOMED 9 STARTUPS WITHIN ITS CYBER@STATION F PROGRAMME
- Thales welcomes 9 startups within its cybersecurity programme at STATION F.
- Thales’s mission is to accelerate the development of startups by providing them with business advice, technical expertise and access to its core markets.
- Thales has chosen 9 startups, adding value to the Group’s global cybersecurity offer and complementary to each other, offering clients solutions covering the whole cybersecurity chain.
For many years, Thales has put its collaborative approach at the heart of its strategy as the Group believes cooperation between SMEs, startups and industrials is a considerable source of innovation. Last June, through its recently-launched Digital Factory, Thales has been selected by STATION F, the world’s largest startup campus, to manage its cybersecurity programme.
Thales’s mission is to accelerate the development of startups by providing them with business advice, technical expertise and access to its core markets: aerospace, space, ground transportation, defence and security. Thales will foster the engagement of its employees to work along with the startups and share their expertise of the markets in order to co-create value for the clients and co-develop innovative solutions and services.
«I am very pleased to welcome the 9 selected startups who will give life to the Thales’s cybersecurity programme. As a recognised expert in cybersecurity, Thales has now the challenge to make this programme successful creating new opportunities for the startups but also for the Group. As cybersecurity is a prerequisite for any digital transformation, we have a great playground to reach our goal: co-develop the most innovative cybersecurity solutions.”
Patrice Caine, Chairman & CEO of Thales
