About LORCA

THE LONDON OFFICE FOR
RAPID CYBERSECURITY ADVANCEMENT

LORCA accelerates the growth of UK cyber companies to solve the digital challenges faced by enterprises, the economy and society. We’re a cybersecurity ecosystem that’s backed by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport and delivered by Plexal, the innovation centre.

Through forums, events, direct introductions and tailored programmes, we connect startups, scaleups, academics, investors, government and industry from around the world.

We help enterprises access cutting edge cyber innovation and insights, build proof of concepts and form partnerships that enable them to embrace digital transformation, boost their security and futureproof their business. We also ensure cyber startups understand what industry needs now and in the future.

With support from Deloitte and the Centre for Secure Information Technologies, LORCA runs accelerator programmes to support and scale the cyber innovations we need most. Welcoming a new cohort of cyber scaleups into our accelerator every six months, we act as a landing pad into the UK market and a launchpad into global markets. We give our members everything they need to scale, from mentoring and trade delegations to connecting them with industry and investors.
