CyNam (Cyber Cheltenham)


CyNam (Cyber Cheltenham) helps create the conditions for local cyber technology innovation. We provide the capability, community and culture to help set small companies on the path towards becoming ‘unicorns’.

We see CyNam as orchestrators – bringing together pioneering start-ups with investment, industry and government for wealth creation in the Gloucestershire region.

Based in Cheltenham, the home of GCHQ and the largest concentration of cyber technology businesses in the country, CyNam (Cyber Cheltenham) began as a modest Meetup networking group in 2015, for members of the region’s cyber security community.

In a short space of time, CyNam’s popularity grew dramatically, and today it hosts regular events with hundreds of attendees. Now more than 900 members strong, CyNam provides a valuable, Cheltenham-centric platform that connects the best cyber technology minds and local SMEs and start-ups to support from people, expertise, guidance, funding, and new business.
