The world-leading startup accelerator, Startupbootcamp (SBC), is excited to announce their newest partnership with Australian RegTech company 6clicks and by doing so SBC aims to help their predominantly B2B startup and scaleup portfolio scale faster.
When startup founders move from pilot into commercial contracts with large banks, energy companies or the government they are often slowed down or stopped in their tracks because of the regulatory demands placed on them by procurement departments. Without accessibility to cyber security, risk and compliance software, a huge amount of time and money goes into manually carrying out these risk assessments and compliance management tasks. This often has a catastrophic effect on the productivity of the business and retards the sales cycle.
6clicks manage cyber security risk and compliance by combining a simple user interface and a groundbreaking cloud-computing platform. This gives their customers access to state-of-the-art Software as a Service (SaaS), giving service providers, enterprises and startups a simple, inexpensive, faster and better way to manage the complexity of their regulatory demands.
6clicks CEO and Co-Founder Anthony Stevens shared his personal business story including the frustrations he experienced and the backstory as to why 6clicks was created at a Fireside Chat last night with the current SBC Smart Energy cohort in Startupbootcamp’s Melbourne office.

CEO and Co-Founder of 6clicks, Anthony Stevens, said,
“The current software inefficiency associated with risk management and compliance is through the roof. The stakes are only going to get higher, which is exactly why we created 6clicks for Startups. We’re looking forward to a great year ahead working with Trevor and the team at Startupbootcamp”.
CEO of Startupbootcamp Australia, Trevor Townsend, said,
“With such a dynamic technology ecosystem here in Melbourne, there is no surprise that issues around cyber security, risk management and compliance has become increasingly important. We are very excited to be partnering with Anthony and his team at 6clicks to give our startups the resources they need to reduce the hardship of cybersecurity risk and successfully scale faster”.
6clicks will bring value to Startupbootcamp startups during their 3-month accelerator program as well as our alumni from previous cohorts, by reducing the burden of these inbound cybersecurity assessments and offering the software at an affordable price. Startups will now be able to scale more effectively due to their better understanding of their cyber maturity while identifying shortcomings to remediate and demonstrating trust to potential corporate clients.
