Alethea was selected as one of the 19 most promising cybersecurity startups of 2023, according to a select group of Venture Capitalists

WASHINGTON, DC & NEW YORK, NY– August 24, 2023 – Business Insider has named Alethea as one of the 19 most promising cybersecurity and technology startups of 2023, according to a select group of Venture Capitalists. As long as our world relies on technology for everything — jobs, homes, money, healthcare, security — there will be cyber criminals finding ways to exploit the digital world for their own gain.

“Bad actors have evolved drastically over the last few years, becoming more sophisticated and strategic in their tactics. This means the severity of consequences have also increased. Organizations can protect themselves but it means being proactive not reactive,” said Alethea Founder and CEO Lisa Kaplan. “We’re thrilled to be recognized by Insider as one of the most promising cybersecurity startups, and urge the rest of the cyber and technology world to wake up to this issue that impacts every organization with an online presence.”

“The weaponization of the open internet – including malicious disinformation, misinformation, and social media manipulation – is one of the biggest issues we'll have to deal with over the next few decades," said Ted Schlein, Chairman and General Partner of Ballistic Ventures. "Alethea's machine learning SaaS platform conducts multichannel analysis across billions of data points to identify disinformation and manipulation at its start, before it takes hold."


Alethea is a technology company helping the Fortune 500, private companies and nonprofits protect themselves from harms stemming from disinformation. Leveraging its multi-channel machine learning platform, Artemis, Alethea detects disinformation narratives across the internet, enabling customers to proactively defend against this pervasive threat. With Artemis-powered early detection, Alethea customers can protect their reputations, key assets, physical safety and market value. The company was founded in 2019 and is woman owned.
