92. Tim Jones – Hyprfire

Steve and Chris talk with Tim Jones, Managing Director of cyber security startup Hyprfire.

Starting out as a lawyer, he moved into technology law, worked in Sydney, and then moved back to WA to work on various startups in the ASX and private space. He did some advisory work, helped fund tech startups and worked for a time at HealthEngine.

Spun out of Curtin University, Hyprfire has raised some significant capital as well as an Accelerating Commercialisation grant, offering network threat prevention as a service.

“Enjoy the ride. Not many people get to do this. Just recognise that, and enjoy it as much as you can. Celebrate the great moments, and try and keep things in perspective.” ~ Tim Jones.
