Citrix Startup Accelerator, a corporate initiative investing in early stage
startups, today announced its investment in Armor5, Inc., a newly launched

research group that enables Citrix to stay ahead of and adapt to new
technology trends. Focused on entrepreneur-led innovation, the program
provides seed investments, office space, and mentorship to select startups
from around the world. Companies selected for the program benefit from the
global Citrix presence, its entrepreneur-friendly environment, large customer
base and seasoned go-to-market strategies. The Citrix Startup Accelerator is
designed to foster open innovation with up-and-coming startups while helping
them come to market successfully.
