“The Founders Club 50 is a great opportunity for these start-ups, all of whom are on the verge of reaching the next level of innovation.”
Dell has identified the group as the 50 start-ups and founders to watch in spring 2014 and is putting its power behind them to help them reach their objectives. Dell will provide the companies – all on the verge of becoming leaders in their industries – access to an exclusive marketing effort and associated resources designed to grow their businesses.
A new Founders Club 50 class will be announced bi-annually, and Dell is currently accepting applications for the Fall 2014 class. Each participating company will take part in the Founders Club 50 for a two-year term, with programming designed to accelerate their growth, focusing on technology, sales enablement, networking and capital. Member companies also will receive marketing support via inclusion in Dell's social media, marketing materials and public relations efforts.
"The Founders Club 50 is a great opportunity for these start-ups, all of whom are on the verge of reaching the next level of innovation," said Ingrid Vanderveldt, Dell Entrepreneur in Residence. "The program creates a win-win; by serving as a trusted advisor to these companies at this crucial early stage, we hope they will continue to grow with Dell in the future. Dell has always seen the value in fostering innovation and entrepreneurship, and the Founders Club 50 is the natural next step in continuing to help high-growth start-ups expand their networks, find valuable resources and use technology to transform their businesses."
As some of the Founders Club 50 companies are currently operating in stealth mode, a few of the member companies have not been listed.
