San Diego Startups of the Week: March 2018

Written by Marc Alringer

In 2017 many new startups chose San Diego as their home base and they brought in around $350 million in the first quarter. The innovations spanned from the healthcare industry all the way to craft beer enthusiasts. How many startups will there be in 2018? With the growing presence of venture capitalists, an entrepreneurial spirit, and the gorgeous views of the ocean, who wouldn’t want to start a business in San Diego!

Based on a compilation of resources and some startup research, here is a few of our favorite San Diego startups.  


With the increasing amount of hackers and cyberattacks, AttackIQ realized the need for better ways for businesses to know their infrastructure is secure. The company offers a security platform that constantly tests and verifies a company’s security infrastructure. With their software, you can launch automated or on-demand attack scenarios that imitate real threats and measure your overall security posture. Just last year the company raised $7.79 million. This is definitely a company to keep an eye on!
