Keeping our nation safe against an unprecedented number of security risks is arguably one of the biggest innovation challenges of our time. So, BT have teamed up with both the Cabinet Office and TechHub, to search for innovative small businesses that can make a real difference.

They are looking for SMEs to join them at the front-line of security to help deliver imaginative and effective digital products and services.

Do you think you have what it takes?

Cyber Security – do you have an idea that could help to keep data secure and protect critical national infrastructure for both the public sector and businesses?

Data collection, mining and analytics – they’re looking for SMEs with the digital technology experience to help the Police and Home Office use tech to tackle modern slavery and human trafficking. So they need your help to develop solutions around data collection, mining and analytics from technology areas ranging from smartphone apps to big data and the dark web.

You may never have thought about how tech can be used to combat trafficking, but if you’ve got the right experience to co-develop a solution please tell them more.

Digital innovation – they’re also looking for innovation in disruptive digital and communication services to help make the UK a safer place to live and do business.


If your business thrives on innovation and has the skills and knowledge to take on this challenge, they’d love you to enter.

All you have to do is complete the application form and shoot a short video explaining your idea and send it to them by Friday 3rd March 2017.
