Salem Cyber

Founded: 2021

“Salem Cyber builds Artificial Intelligence (AI) solutions that work collaboratively with people to address scalability challenges in cybersecurity operations. We believe AI is most effective when it can collaborate with people, merging their creativity and institutional knowledge with the scalability of machines.

Our product, Salem, is an AI-based cyber analyst designed to increase the number of alert investigations your organization can perform. Salem runs a tier 1 & 2-style investigation on the 100’s or 1000’s of alerts that are too noisy to go into your SOC, and then escalates back the handful that are most likely to be actual cyber threats. By running in some cases 100x or more investigations, Salem gives you the opportunity to identify threats that might have previously flown under the radar, leading to a decreased time-to-detect and an increased ROI of other cyber detection tech you’ve invested in.”

8. inStryde

“Superpowering human movement.”



Founded: 2017

Also honored in:

“The kick-start to launch SWIPEBY is rooted in a day-to-day observation: If you want to enjoy a nice meal at home without doing the cooking yourself, the options you have are just not satisfying. Either you need to wait a long time for your delivery, especially in suburban markets, or you end up queuing at one of the big drive-thrus, which does not offer the meal you really want.

With SWIPEBY we launched a food-ordering app which turns any restaurant into a “drive-thru”. SWIPEBY combines the whole world of great food with a great user experience.”
