Almost a year ago EMC Research Cambridge was founded, a small research arm near MIT. This announcement was accompanied with joining MIT Media Lab as a sponsor.This April came the next announcement, that EMC has joined Plug and Play Tech Center as a corporate partner to advance the company in building EMC Innovation Network.
"Startup companies continue to be a tremendous driver of innovation for the IT industry," said Jeff Nick, EMC Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. "Plug and Play Tech Center will give EMC's technology community access to startup activities, which will complement the organic development of new concepts at our R&D centers on the West Coast and around the world. We look forward to helping many of the companies hosted at the Plug and Play Tech Center move their ideas forward."
I've already stressed (the post is in Russian) that here is Russia we lack of structures like MIT Media Lab. Plug and Play Tech Center shows a good example for Russian startup support organizations like Ingria Business Incubator in St. Petersburg.
By the way, I really like the page about internship at PnP Tech Center - exact, clear and detailed.
