About The EMC Silicon Cup

Sailing for a better future

Now in its sixteenth year, The EMC Silicon Cup is a unique combination of serious fund-raising, fantastic networking and enormous enjoyment.

The event came to life when four senior people in the IT industry decided to combine their passion and their profession to raise meaningful amounts of money for charity - since the first event it has raised over 560,000 for its nominated charities.

In 2014 the event took place in September and attracted over 350 attendees and raised notable funds for charity… in 2015 the objective is to attract over 30 entries and raise over 80,000 for the charities.

Over the years entrants at have been many and varied, attracting a wide range of companies from across the technology sector including service providers, telecoms, manufacturers, software developers, channel partners and other related suppliers, as well as IT teams from other industry sectors.

The majority of key industry players are represented at the event, either as event entrants or as their guests – logos such as Attenda, EMC, Skyscape Cloud Services, VCE, Avnet, Microsoft, HP, Net Evidence, TM Group, Vodaphone, Kelway and Telefonica to name a few.

"I really enjoyed crewing with you all, and massively enjoyed the whole experience.
The team spirit and camaraderie were really high and it felt like we were working together to do something".
