Rackspace Startup Program Global Startup Event Guide: May 2013

May brings us International Space Day on May 3.   Check out the space-related organizations, groups and agencies holding celebrations, demonstrations and educational programs in your area. The Eiffel Tower opened to the public in May 1889. Cinco de Mayo celebrates Mexican heritage and pride. The 35th President of the United States, John F Kennedy, was born this month in 1917. Mother’s Day takes place on Sunday, May 12. And, in the words of Edwin Way Teale, “The world’s favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May.”

Within the startup movement, all things are possible. There are plenty of events happening globally in May 2013.
