Rackspace Startup Program Global Startup Event Guide: May 2014

May brings us Mother’s Day on the 11th. Dr. Benjamin Spock, President John F. Kennedy, Jim Thorpe (the world’s greatest athlete) and Frank L. Baum (author of The Wizard of Oz) were all born in May. International Museum Day is celebrated May 18; this year’s theme, chose by the museum community, is “Museum Collections Make Connections.” The first Kentucky Derby ran this month in 1875. World No Tobacco Day takes place on the 31st of May. And, in the words of Irish novelist, playwright and poet Oliver Goldsmith, “But winter lingering chills the lap of May.”

Within the startup movement, there are plenty of events happening globally in May 2014.
