Dell Announces the Global Expansion of Their Center for Entrepreneurs
In conjunction with GEW, Dell announced plans for global expansion of the Center for Entrepreneurs, starting with the launch of the U.K. Centre for Entrepreneurs, and the appointment of its Entrepreneur-in-Residence Global Advisory Board to lend strategic direction around global rollout of entrepreneurial initiatives.
In May we announced the launch of this initiative, to help founders identify resources they need to start and grow a business. Through the Center for Entrepreneurs, Dell is opening up its resources to start-ups in unprecedented ways to help fuel innovation and global growth, including giving select founders direct access to business feedback from Michael Dell via the Tech Innovation day: Pitch Slam taking place during Dell World 2013. Dell is kicking off an online contest today to locate the final technology startup to participate in the event.
"For Dell, supporting entrepreneurs isn't just a business strategy, but a corporate philosophy. Since launching in the United States a year ago, the Dell Center for Entrepreneurs has been a true testament to the collaborative win-win of startups and corporations partnering for growth," said Ingrid Vanderveldt, entrepreneur-in-residence at Dell. "Today, we're excited to be taking big steps forward in expanding this footprint globally."
