Rackspace is Driving Startups to Success

Filed in by Angela Bartels | March 15, 2011 10:23 am

Rackspace has always been committed to helping entrepreneurs succeed and drive the next generation of businesses through cloud innovation. This is something we’re passionate about because not too long ago, we too were a startup. Now, with the Rackspace Startup Program, we’ll be providing one-on-one guidance and cloud compute resources[1] to help power these startups to success.

We’ve partnered with leading startup accelerators and incubators such as 500 Startups, TechStars[2], Y Combinator[3] and General Assembly[4] to provide cloud computing resources to their participating startups.

Dave McClure, Founder of 500 Startups

“A lot of folks don’t understand that Rackspace is actually a startup success story – they grew from a 10 person startup to a leading cloud player, so they understand what it takes to succeed. Fortunately for the tech community, Rackspace continues to invest in entrepreneurs by providing compute power to hundreds of startups.”
