Leidos Virtual Technology Cluster

Leidos operates a virtual network of businesses to allow small UK-based companies, specialising in cyber-security and other information, communications technology expertise, to obtain support and investment for the development of new technologies and markets.

Working in partnership with The VTC Group, Leidos operates a Virtual Technology Cluster (VTC) that brings together industry, academia and the investment community.

The Leidos VTC provides small, specialist businesses with access to a ready-made ecosystem of capital, professional services and suppliers relevant to their field. Through a multi-tiered arrangement, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) will have the ability to trade with larger companies and benefit from growth support as well as shared intelligence, experience and ideas.

The Company launched this new initiative in 2015 to accelerate innovation, boost growth and allow innovative cyber-security and other information, communications solutions, created by the UK’s SME community, to grow and mature in order to realise secure cost and operationally effective ICT solutions for Customers.

Member companies operate in:

  • Cyber Security
  • Multi-intelligence Fusion
  • Service Offerings – Security-cleared Architects, Cyber and Cloud Consultants, Penetration Testers, Network Engineers and Data Scientists
  • Big Data Analytics
  • Situational Awareness and Decision Support.

Leidos has long recognised the importance of cyber-technology and has invested significantly in developing capabilities to protect its global business and customers against potential threats.

Tier 2 Sponsors of the Leidos VTC are complementary corporations wishing to enhance their access to UK based innovation. Working in partnership with Leidos, each Tier 2 Sponsor has access to the member companies within the VTC and will be able to engage in commercial relationships with a subset of their choice. Tier 3 Sponsors are industry specialists in areas of critical importance to high-potential, entrepreneurial companies wishing to scale up, providing value-add services and mentoring/coaching support to VTC Member companies.

If you are interested in becoming a Tier 2 or Tier 3 sponsor company, please contact Auriol Stevens, CEO The VTC Group via virtualtechnologycluster.lmuk@lmco.com

The benefits to SME companies of joining the VTC include gaining access to a secure virtual community, to Tier 3 expertise and to the supply chains of the Leidos, The VTC Group and Tier 2 sponsors at no cost and without the need to relocate to a campus or other physical cluster.
