Rackspace Startup Program Global Startup Event Guide: December 2013

December brings us International Day of Persons with Disabilities on the third day of the month –  the theme of 2013 is “Removing barriers to create an inclusive and accessible society for all.” Inventor Eli Whitney and composer Ludwig van Beethoven were both born this month in the 1760s. The first day of winter falls on December 21. Texas became the 28th state in the United States in December 1845. And in the words of William Shakespeare, “When we shall hear the rain and wind beat dark December, how in this our pinching cave shall we discourse the freezing hours away?”

Within the startup movement, there are plenty of events happening globally in December 2013. The Rackspace Startup Program is here to keep you up to date with valuable information on events and happenings inside the global startup community.
