Rackspace Startup Program Global Startup Event Guide: September 2012

September brings us the first day of autumn, Hispanic Heritage Month and International Day of Peace, aka “Peace Day,” on Friday, September 21st with special activities and celebrations all across the world. Sir Robert Peel submitted the Metropolis Police Improvement Bill to the British Parliament in 1829 to curb the level of lawlessness in the streets of London. This was the birth of Scotland Yard. And, in the words of Lawrence S. Pertillar, “September arrives and autumn begins. The Summer then bows to fall.”

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

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!
