Rackspace Startup Program Global Startup Event Guide: December 2012

December brings us the Holiday season around the world. International Day of Person with Disabilities occurs December 3rd, with the theme of removing barriers to create an inclusive and accessible society for all. Texas became the 28th state in December 1845, and the phonograph was invented by Thomas Edison in December 1877. And, in the words of Helen H Moore, “Every year at just this time, in cold and dark December, families around the world all gather to remember, with presents and with parties, with feasting and with fun, customs and traditions, for people old and young.” Happy Holidays from the Rackspace Startup Program!

Within the startup movement, there are plenty of events happening globally in December 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 and let us know about it. The Rackspace Startup Program is looking forward to hearing all about it!
