Business Solutions - the power to do more with the help of IT

The Power TO Do More
UK Centre for Entrepreneurs

How do you turn creativity and an entrepreneurial spirit into thriving businesses?

Our owner Michael Dell founded the company almost 30 years ago and ever since, creativity and an entrepreneurial spirit have been the hallmarks of our business and company culture. We believe that technology is a necessary part of running a successful business and strive to help entrepreneurs use technology to take ideas from start-up to success. However, beyond providing technology solutions alone, we also want to draw on our own experiences and become a trusted advisor to growing start-ups. Our new UK Centre for Entrepreneurs allows us to do just that.
 
Centre for Entrepreneurs Advisory Council

Start-ups in Residence Competition 

Start-ups in Residence programme
Out 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 ran a competition, with the winners receiving free office space at our Bracknell campus for a tenancy of one or two years, as well as a range of business ready solutions including notebooks, servers and storage. They also receive mentorship, advice and access to Dell's professional networks and events, as well as having full access to Dell's Customer Briefing Centre and other on-site facilities.

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.

How do you turn billions of pieces of data into a mountain of hope?

Featured Case Study: Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGEN)


Neuroblastoma strikes one in 100,000 children annually in the United States and can produce aggressive tumors that are unique to each child. Often these tumors don't respond to conventional one-size-fits-all treatment. In the past, parents and pediatric oncologists have relied largely on "trial and error" in their search for treatment, due to a lack of resources and funding available for this small patient base. To help, we've partnered with TGen as part of our Children's Cancer Care initiative, providing the IT infrastructure, corporate funding and employee volunteers to support the cause.

When Caterham F1 Team was accepted into the Formula 1™ circuit, they had just five months to build a team from scratch.They had no cars,and no drivers — and nowhere near the type of technology it takes to build and maintain a 21st century Formula 1 racing team.
