Rackspace Startup Program Global Startup Event Guide: April 2013

April brings us April Fool’s Day on the first day of the month. The first iPad was sold in the United States this month in 2010. On World Health Day, April 7, 2013, the World Health Organization and partners will focus on the global problem of high blood pressure. Artist and inventor Leonardo Da Vinci was born this month in 1452. For Earth Day 2013 on the 22nd of April, the Earth Day Network will tell the world stories of people, animals and places affected by climate change – and of those stepping up to do something about it. And, in the words of William Shakespeare, “Men are April when they woo, December when they wed. Maids are May when they are maids, but the sky changes when they are wives.”

Within the startup movement, there are plenty of events happening globally in April 2013.
