Round Rock-based Dell has launched an effort to help female entrepreneurs, saying this morning that it has launched a new effort it calls the Pay It Forward initiative. Dell said it has linked with the United Nations Foundation and Girl UP; Girl Scouts of the USA; and the Dell Social Innovation Challenge to encourage successful women business owners to mentor other aspiring women entrepreneurs. Dell said it will back the effort through an event and other efforts, including an online portal focused on supporting women and girls in the area of entrepreneurship.
