Jonathan Slater is one of three Co-founders at Capslock, a cyber security education start-up tackling the cybersecurity skills gap and helping adults re-skill. CAPSLOCK has raised over £1m pre-seed funding and re-skilled over 200 UK adults in cyber security in 2021. 

Jonathan’s previous career as a recruiter made him realise there was a gap in the market and he sat down with the other two female co-founders and started capslock.

To note capslock is one of the rare startups, luckily more and more common, that is made for more than 50% by a female cofounder.
