Rackspace Startup Program Global Startup Event Guide: February 2013

February brings us Super Bowl XLVII, which will be held in New Orleans on Sunday, Feb. 3, 2013 with the Baltimore Ravens taking on the San Francisco 49ers. We all know that Silicon Valley will be abuzz with 49ers mania on the first Sunday of February. Thefacebook.com, the first iteration of Facebook, was launched this month in 2004. International Polar Bear Day takes place on February 27, launching a new Save Our Ice campaign, which will include a “Two Up or Two Down” Thermostat Challenge, depending on where in the world you live. And, in the words of Suze Orman, “No one’s ever achieved financial fitness with a January resolution that’s abandoned by February.”

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

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 looks forward to hearing all about it!
