We’re excited to announce that Hook Security is headed to Atlanta after winning the NEXT Upstate Venture Summit Pitch Competition.
About the Competition
The NEXT Venture Summit started with thirty of the top startups from North and South Carolina.

These startups included a wide variety of businesses from payment platforms, bicycle manufacturers, infrastructure, and real estate.
