“Target Corp. wants innovation to be a bigger part of its corporate DNA, so it’s opening an office right in the heart of Silicon Valley. The Minneapolis-based retailer quietly unveiled a new tech hub in Sunnyvale this week, its second major outpost in California. In 2012, it also opened its Technology Innovation Center in downtown San Francisco.
The latter, which has about 20 employees, is more focused on testing and exploring new technologies with start-ups. But the Sunnyvale office will be more geared toward data analytics and engineering for its online and mobile teams, said Eddie Baeb, a Target spokesman.”
