<p>Box UK is delighted to announce that it was selected from a number of highly innovative organisations to be a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Entrepreneurship Lab (E-Lab) company. Box UK is one of only nine companies selected to participate, and the only one from outside of North America, from 22 finalists and hundreds of applicants. </p>

<p>Claire Cunningham from MIT commented, “Box UK was selected because of its new Amaxus 4 product, which we consider an exciting development in the Content Management System world. The strength of Box UK’s customer base was also a factor and we are looking forward to continuing to work with the company.” </p>

<p>In E-Lab, teams of graduate management, engineering and science students work on a project brief with MIT professors critical to the success of a new technology venture. They typically work with technology-intensive, intellectual property-based companies, including biotech, cleantech, wireless, software and hardware manufacturers. </p>

<p>“The combination of MIT professors, Harvard Business School MBAs and the resources of both schools is something that will be used to allow Box UK to maximise the opportunities for Amaxus 4,” said PJ Meyer from Harvard Business School. </p>

<p>In September Judy Haynes (Box UK’s Operations Director) and Dan Zambonini (Box UK’s Technical Director) travelled to Boston to spend time with the MIT team.</p>

<p>“As we prepare to launch a brand new iteration of Amaxus in the spring of 2009, the opportunity to get the perspective of thinkers from world-class institutions like MIT and Harvard has been invaluable,” said Judy Haynes. “We are very much looking forward to hearing the final report from our E-Lab team and to applying some of their conclusions as we plan to unveil this amazing product.” </p>
