Dell reveals growth following privatization

Since Dell went private about a month and a half ago, the company has seen swift growth and a surge in tablet sales, according to Michael Dell, the company's founder, chairman and CEO.

"We're growing since the privatization. We've been growing at double-digit rates," Dell said. "We had fantastic demand in our consumer business. Black Friday sell-through week was up 30 percent year over year."

The company's investing with a long-term focus in areas where they see potential for growth, including emerging markets and its solutions and services capability, Dell told CNBC's "Squawk Box."

Dell singled out tablets as one growth spot for the tech company.

"Our tablet business doubled from the first quarter to the second, doubled again from the second to the third. This quarter, it appears to be tripling so we're just having enormous growth in tablets."

The company also announced a new $300 million venture fund that Dell said would accelerate invention outside of the company.

"We'll work with these companies to incubate them, give them resources and help them grow to be part of the ecosystem we're all apart of," he added.
