We’re happy to announce that Proton Mail has been selected as one of the Semifinalists in the 2014 MIT100K start-up launch competition. We competed against over 300 other start-ups for one of the ten semifinalists slots in the Web/IT competition track.

This is a great validation of our position that privacy matters, and in addition to the benefits privacy brings to society, it also makes good business sense.

The MIT100K is one of the world’s largest and most famous start-up competitions. More information is available on their website http://mit100k.org/ and Wikipedia.
