  Cybersecurity, Big Data and Analytics Companies

Creating an environment for actionable strategic discussions and
executive-level professional development

Business Wire

WASHINGTON -- September 26, 2013

AlphaTech Group, Inc. has announced that it is launching an exclusive,
CEO-level initiative that will serve Mid-Atlantic emerging growth companies in
the cybersecurity, big data and analytics industries. AlphaTech is chartered
with supporting and accelerating the growth of these companies through a
variety of business-building opportunities, including industry-specific topic
discussions with pioneers from the public and private sectors.

Each year in the fall, AlphaTech will invite CEOs to apply for participation
in an eight-month-long series of events which will culminate in a unique
capstone ceremony that will not soon be forgotten. Each group will include
15-25 CEOs from across the Mid-Atlantic. Selected CEOs will benefit from
salient growth topic presentations, special access to all presenters and
advisers, incredible networking with investors and potential business partners
and inclusion in a private alumni network.

Unlike other programs that charge application and participation fees,
AlphaTech does not charge CEOs to participate. AlphaTech is also laser-focused
on cybersecurity, big data and analytics companies from both the commercial
and government contracting sectors and tailors its programming accordingly.

“Cybersecurity, big data and analytics represent some of the fastest growing
and most important industries across the globe,” said Greg Giammittorio, a
partner at Morrison & Foerster and one of AlphaTech’s founders. “But these are
still nascent industries that need active support from the business community
to fully achieve the great potential for these companies and the region.
That’s why we created AlphaTech, to provide that foundation and assist the
region’s most dynamic executives and their companies to succeed.”

AlphaTech’s kick-off event will be held in late October and feature Dr.
Prescott Winter, Managing Director, The Chertoff Group and former CIO and CTO,
National Security Agency, as well as CTO for Public Sector Security within the
Enterprise Security Unit at Hewlett Packard.”

“We already have over a dozen companies who have joined AlphaTech, including
Red Owl Analytics, TransVoyant and Haystax Technology. The entire board of
advisers is excited to start working with these companies and identifying ways
to really help their businesses reach the next level of growth,” said Tim
Keenan, CEO of Keenan & Associate and former CEO and Chairman of High
Performance Technologies, Inc.

For CEOs who are considering applying, AlphaTech is looking for the following:

  *Primary business operations located within the Mid-Atlantic
  *Private companies
  *Annual revenue between $1M - $50M
  *CEO/founder representative
  *Operations within the cybersecurity, big data or analytics sectors

To learn more about AlphaTech and to apply, CEOs are encouraged to visit
