Great ideas come from everywhere! At Dell we are committed to fostering that entrepreneurial spirit and help emerging companies get to market faster, which is why we launched Dell’s Start-up in Residence programme.
Thank you to everyone who entered our 2014 competition, we are reviewing applications, will be announcing the finalists shortly and plan to announce the Winners on March 14th 2014.
Our Start-up in Residence programme has been designed to support businesses in the early stage of growth by removing some of the costly but necessary investments including technology and office space. In early 2014 we are running a competition to select two companies to be our first resident start-ups. Based at Dell’s Bracknell campus, the first and second place winners will receive dedicated work space for up to 10 employees for a tenancy of one or two years, respectively, and access to essential technology required to accelerate the growth of their business. During their tenancy, they will benefit from Dell’s onsite facilities, including our executive customer briefing centre to meet with clients or partners, they will have the opportunity to receive mentoring from senior members of the Dell team, as well as access to key Dell customer and networking events.
The programme is a fantastic opportunity for early stage start-ups to get an advantage against their competitors; taking away some of the key costs necessary for growth and giving them the opportunity to focus on making their dreams a reality.
As their story evolves, we will share their experiences through our blog, and at our events.
