With an allocated budget of £250,000, is the UK government serious about helping security startups? If the UK's cybersecurity industry is worth £17.6bn annually and employees over 100,000 people, then £250,000 represents 0.00142% which seems like an odd amount if the intention is to make a difference and help promote cybersecurity excellence in the UK. The UK is one of the world's leaders when it comes to cybersecurity, and not only should this be promoted, the UK economy is also a major target, and the investment would most likely pay for itself very quickly. Good luck to the one or two companies that are able to get a slice of the funds.
