Rackspace Startup Program Global Startup Event Guide: October 2012

October brings us United Nations Day; celebrated internationally for the purpose of informing the people of the world as to the aims, goals and achievements of the UN. You can join the global movement to end hunger on October 16 during World Food Day. In 1931, World Animal Day was started at a convention of ecologists in Florence as a way of highlighting the plight of endangered species. And, in the words of Robert Frost, “O hushed October morning mild, thy leaves have ripened to the fall.”

Within the startup movement, there are plenty of events happening globally in October 2012. 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.
