Dell Technologies Honors “Best of the Best” Innovators at 2019 NEVY Awards

first_imgWhile our reach to create technologies that drive human progress at Dell Technologies spans the globe, we are fiercely dedicated to recognizing and fostering innovation in our local communities.Recently, we supported this cause as the presenting sponsor of the seventh annual NEVY Awards (“The NEVYs”) in Boston, Massachusetts. We joined the New England Venture Capital Association (NEVCA) in proudly honoring many like-minded companies who are fueled by a similar desire to create innovative technologies and solutions that will enable customers to thrive in the digital future.The NEVYs honor both early- and late-stage companies, and the venture capitalists who support them, and include a wide variety of the region’s thriving industry clusters. This year’s 12 award categories recognize local companies and their investors. Final winners are selected by the NEVYs Technology, Healthcare and Life Sciences Academies.In addition to the NEVYs, we’re active in a variety of other channels and local initiatives to help bring innovation to life. For example, our venture arm Dell Technologies Capital, provides early-stage companies with investments and specialized guidance to kickstart and accelerate their growth. We’re extremely proud that Boston-based companies Nasuni and Nantero are among DTC’s portfolio.We hosted MassForward: A Vision for 2030, to encourage conversations about how our local communities can continue to participate in the expansion and adaptation of emerging technologies. These discussions between industry leaders, government officials and technology specialists ensure that the resources to advance the state’s social and economic growth are at the forefront.Dell Technologies has also cultivated close partnerships with organizations like Cambridge research and engineering firm Draper, who is developing a constellation of toaster sized satellites that can collect ultra-high-resolution images covering the entire surface of the planet. These images help scientists identify areas where fire-related water contamination is a risk.  By transforming their IT infrastructure, Draper engineers have been able to increase their productivity, and develop new technologies with the ability to determine the potential spread of diseases, combat animal poaching, and predict severe weather events.Massachusetts is no stranger to innovation. In fact, a recent Bloomberg study showed that Massachusetts was the second most innovative state in the U.S., second only to California. Some might say it’s a statistical tie for #1. We at Dell Technologies are dedicated to keeping this strong momentum going.[1]Let’s take a moment to celebrate the below NEVY winners, for their ongoing commitment to making innovation a reality in the technology, life science and healthcare industries.Check out photos from the event on social media using #NEVYs19.[1] Bloomberg, California Is the Most Innovative Economy in America, April 16, 2019last_img read more
