Local technology membership group CyberTECH announced nine startups have entered its Entrepreneurs in Residence program.

“This is an exceptional group of entrepreneurs, with diverse backgrounds and at different development stages,” said Darin Andersen, chairman and founder of CyberTECH, in a statement. “We’re proud to offer them our collective expertise, support and mentorship.”

The program offers six months of cheap rental housing at CyberTECH, which is located in the Manpower building in Bankers Hill. The idea is to build connections between startups and CyberTECH’s partners and stakeholders.

The following startups were added to the Entrepreneurs in Residence program: Insurance on the Web, 360 Stock VR, Amino Acid Sports, Docfully, Velocy, Ice Cybersecurity, QuiO, Drone Aviator, Intnd.io.
