Defendify is a proud Portland, Maine-based startup, and was recently featured as such at the Maine Technology Users Group (MTUG) Peers and Beers event, held on January 29, 2020 in Saco, Maine. Co-Founder Rob Simopoulos presented on the Defendify story to a group of MTUG members and their networks. MTUG brings together participants from the Maine technology and telecommunications industries for events, information, education, and networking.

Rob discussed his experience and process launching Defendify, the all-in-one cybersecurity platform that makes cybersecurity possible for small businesses. The group learned about Defendify’s wins, challenges, and journey from idea to inception to current state—especially relevant as Defendify recently raised $2 million in funding to expand its platform. Defendify has been a Portland, Maine-based company from the beginning, and Rob and business partner Andrew Rinaldi are proud to have worked with many exceptional organizations such as MTI (Maine Technology Institute), FAME (Finance Authority of Maine), and MVF (Maine Venture Fund), as well as other entrepreneurs throughout the state.

The Peers and Beers event was a great opportunity for attendees to learn about launching a technology startup in Maine and get inspiration for their own great ideas. Rob and the Defendify team were proud to be included in the event, and were happy to show support and speak with attendees about their experiences working for a tech startup.

Stay Safe,

Your Friends @ Defendify
