Rackspace Startup Program Global Startup Event Guide: July 2012

July is a month of milestones: It welcomes the Independence Day of the good ole US of A, International Joke Day and the 57th anniversary of Disneyland. The 17th day of the month marks the celebration of Yellow Pig Day, which was started by a pair of mathematicians in the early 1960s who were charged with analyzing the properties of the number 17. The conjured up a mythical Yellow Pig that has 17 teeth, 17 toes, 17 eye lashes and so on that is honored that day.

In the words of Francis Thompson, “the summer looks out from her brazen tower, through the flashing bars of July.”

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!
