It feels very good to be one of only 5 companies handpicked by Cisco for its innovation amongst hundreds of worthy startups. Cisco EIR is seeking early-stage innovators who will disrupt the industry with their technology.
We have been working with Cisco and it has been a great collaboration. We are looking forward to build up on our relationship by working very closely with the Cisco EIR team and our sponsors.
Cisco Entrepreneurs in Residence (Cisco EIR) is a unique 6-month startup program that supports entrepreneurs working on the next big ideas in the Internet of Everything (IoE), Smart Cities, Big Data/analytics and other transformational opportunities strategic to Cisco. The program includes resources and opportunities to work with Cisco product and engineer teams, co-working space in Silicon Valley, financial support and potential strategic funding.
“Cisco always embraced disruption and innovation and that’s exactly why they have been a great partner,” says our CEO Paul Camacho. “Cisco’s disrupt or be disrupted approach is exemplified with programs like Cisco EIR and the growing relationship with disruptive companies like C³DNA . Enterprise IT wants a more open and portable cloud and Cisco has been paving the way for the next cloud generation.”
C³DNA’s platform provides self-reliance and portability of any application on any cloud infrastructure at the app layer. By eliminating application management from Cloud infrastructure, C³DNA’s software brings security, compliance and end-to-end Application Lifecycle Management across enterprise datacenters, Private or Hybrid Clouds.
