Rackspace Startup Program Global Startup Event Guide: August 2012

Filed in Partner & Customer Updates by John McKenna | July 31, 2012 8:00 am

August marks Back to School; the debut of MTV in 1981; and in many European countries, August is the holiday month for most workers. The month of August was named after the Roman emperor Augustus Caesar. Captain William Bligh was appointed to command a ship named the Bounty on the 16th of August, 1787. And, in the words of Joseph Wood Krutch, “August creates as she slumbers, replete and satisfied.”

Within the startup movement, there are plenty of events happening globally in August 2012.

Startups…get involved with the movement and participate in an event in your community. There is no better time than now to build or strengthen your network. Networking with other entrepreneurs allows you to form and maintain a strong circle of contacts that will serve you well for years to come. If you are an entrepreneur with a new idea in cloud computing, an application that makes people’s lives better or the next big thing online, drop the Space Cowboys a note[69] and let us know about it. The Rackspace Startup Program[70] is looking forward to hearing all about it!
