London, England – Tricerion, captured first prize at the national finals of the Entrepreneurship World Cup competition held recently in London.
Schehrezade Davidson, CEO of Triceron, captured first prize and advances to the next round of the global competition against national winners from 184 countries.
"Tricerion lets users bin alphaneumeric passwords” said Davidson. “My co-founder Stewart is dyslexic and wanted to find an alternative way of having to login - ie not typing in an alphanumeric password. Our solution which uses pictures as passwords is more secure and memorable for consumers.”
Tricerion replaces the alphanumeric password with picture password login. Users see a keypad consisting of a set of images and each time this happens, the images in the keypad shuffle round. At each login, the chosen password is entered by clicking on a certain number of images - always in the same order. The company deploys its solution as software as a service where applications can integrate with Tricerion’s password solution on mobile or web platforms.
In preparation for the EWC Global Finals, Schehrezade Davidson will participate in an acceleration program which features virtual training and one-to-one mentoring with international mentors to prepare for the EWC Global Final, which will be held in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) on November 12-14, 2019.
More than 102,000 contestants from 187 countries entered the Entrepreneurship World Cup. The initiative combines a broad-reaching pitch competition, aimed at ventures ranging from idea stage to growth stage, with a virtual accelerator program to help all participants launch, strengthen and scale their enterprises. Global Finalists will face off against one another at the Misk Global Forum ahead of Global Entrepreneurship Week in November 2019.
EWC is an initiative led by the Global Entrepreneurship Network and Misk Global Forum with support from a collection of national and global partnerns, including the Global Educational and Leadership Foundation and GSVlabs.
