Rackspace Startup Program Global Startup Event Guide: February 2014

February brings us Robinson Crusoe Day on the firstday of the month. The Vietnam War ended in February 1973. The first President of the United States, George Washington was born this month in 1732, and the 16th President, Abraham Lincoln was born in 1809. Each year on February 22nd, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world celebrate World Thinking Day (WTD). International Polar Bear Day falls on the 27th of the month. And, in the words of American journalist Hunter S. Thompson, “February is always a bad month for TV sports. Football is gone, basketball is plodding along in the annual midseason doldrums, and baseball is not even mentioned.”

Within the startup movement, there are plenty of events happening globally in February 2014. The Rackspace Startup Program is here to keep you up to date with valuable information on events and happenings inside the global startup community.
