This is a sponsored post by Dell, and we would like to thank them for their support!
When Dell first founded the Dell Center for Entrepreneurs, it was evident that they wanted to build and sustain a firm commitment to open up their resources to startups and fuel innovation in unprecedented ways. This fall Dell will be hosting the Tech Innovation Day Series to further their mission even more.
Focused on three distinct markets – Healthcare and Life Sciences, Education, and the Internet of Things (IOT) – the Tech Innovation Day Series will provide a unique opportunity for startup companies to get their businesses in front of key decision makers at Dell. While the Healthcare and Life Sciences portion is already ended, the time is ripe for startups to apply to the other two.
For each track Dell is searching for six to eight companies with Minimum Viable Products (MVP), funding, and at a growth stage. The selected startups will pitch their ideas, in closed door fashion, to a panel of Dell executives in addition to their affiliated partners and industry influencers.
In addition to the publicity and feedback, one finalist from each track will win the opportunity to consult with and work on a proof of concept with Dell. Everything will culminate at Dell World this November as the winners get to participate in a final Pitch Slam featuring Michael Dell as a judge.
Dell and the Dell Center for Entrepreneurs have partnered to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship in K-12 education. Specifically, they are looking for K-12 app creators who are solving pain points in the classroom, improving the learning experience, and enabling student voices.
The solution must be web-centric and work in commercially standard web browsers as well as Chrome, Android, and Windows 8.1; technologies of interest include student, teacher, and IT administrator productivity.
