Light Point Security, the secure browsing software startup based at UMBC, is part of the series with two dozen other startups from around the country. They’re receiving mentorship and feedback from people like Sir Richard Branson and Steve Case and throughout the five-month series. Using that feedback, startups will be dropped from the running until a single venture is crowned as the strongest among the field.
“They received over 500 applications and only selected 24 startups. We are very proud of our little Baltimore-based startup,” said cofounder Zuly Gonzalez, 33.
As has become custom in these sorts of things. there is also a social component. The Wall Street Journal is asking for viewers to vote whether or not they would consider investing in the startups if they went public.
