Hopkinton-based tech giant EMC Corp. has not specifically outlined just what the $67 billion deal with Dell Inc. means for its 9,700 employees here in Massachusetts.

To talk about the impact of the deal, Massachusetts High Technology Council President Chris Anderson joined Morning Edition.

“Massachusetts is not a “one tech town” but the departure of CEO leadership out of state is part of a troubling trend.  Policymakers have to focus on how to encourage and incentivize the “next EMC” from within today’s thriving startup community to grow to scale here rather than elsewhere in the future.”  ~ Chris Anderson
