Black Unicorn Awards 2019 - Criteria to Apply

The Nominee must be a cybersecurity corporation of any structure that was incorporated no later than January 1, 2018.  The Nominee can be a cybersecurity startup, early stage company, expansion stage, pre-ipo or post-ipo stage as long as its current valuation is not more than $250m USD.

The Nominee must provide an executive summary of the business on a single sheet of paper, the Official Nomination Form, found here.

The Official Nomination Form is used to build your company profile for our print and electronic edition of the Black Unicorn Report for 2019, should you be a finalist or winner.  There is no need to disclose financials if you don’t want to – or current or future rounds of funding.  It’s only to help if you win, to help you rise above the noise of others in the field and put you on the investment community radar, should you wish.

These awards will be covered by many in the mainstream media as well…we inform over seven thousand (7,000) direct media contacts in radio, print and TV plus we are providing our own coverage for the finalists and winners throughout 2019.

If you wish to Rise Above the Noise! in a crowded market, this will absolutely help you.

The printed Black Unicorn Report for 2019 and the online version will be useful for customers, partners, employees, future investors, board members, etc.  This will generate serious prestige for the winners and finalists, so don’t miss out!

We need company contact information, your mission statement, your vision, a summary of the company structure and relevant history.  In addition, we need a summary of the products and services, their unique value proposition, intellectual property position, if any, competitive advantage, development status of the company (in beta, released, early revenues, growth revenues, etc.).

The Judges would like you to describe the market opportunity, the target market, the geographical markets you are selling into, a list of top competitors, your 2018 financials, your 2019 projected financials and your 2020 projected financials.  This can be top line gross revenues, including the profit margins.  We would like a summary of your financing history, current valuation and if you are currently raising a round of financing.

In addition, under the Conclusions section of the application you could summarize why you feel your Company should become a Black Unicorn.
