Rackspace Startup Program Global Startup Event Guide: October 2013

October brings us International Day of Non-Violence on the 2nd of the month, the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi. The International Red Cross organized in Geneva, Switzerland in 1863. Pablo Picasso was born in October of 1881. Thomas Edison showed the first motion picture in 1889. World Food Day on the 16th is a global movement to end hunger. The first space vehicle, Sputnik 1 launched this month in 1957. Billy Joel’s 52nd Street was the first CD released by Sony in 1982, and now can be found on millions of iPods, which was first revealed this month in 2001. Halloween ends October on the 31st.  And, in the words of novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne, “There is no reason when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feeling, as now in October.”

Within the startup movement, there are plenty of events happening globally in October 2013. 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. The Rackspace Startup Program looks forward to hearing all about it!
