Calling All Entrepreneurs… Is Here!

En·tre·pre·neurA person who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk.

Do you have the entrepreneurial spirit deep within yourself to create a startup? The Rackspace Startup Program team knows a startup business can be an exciting, challenging, rewarding and very stressful experience all rolled into one.

A true entrepreneur lives in the future. They strive for ideation because startups are built on ideas. Much like the idea Rackspace Hosting had when the Rackspace Startup Program was conceived. The main goal of the Rackspace Startup Program is to help entrepreneurs to grow their startup business by providing access to Cloud Hosting services, tools and products while assisting startups with our vast pools of knowledge within Rackspace Hosting. Our main focus is on 4 channels: Incubators/Accelerators, Self-funded Bootstrappers, University Programs and Venture Capitalists.

Entrepreneurs know how to find opportunities that may not be apparent to most. And they also know how to navigate around the pitfalls which lurk within opportunity. “Summing up, it is clear the future holds great opportunities. It also holds pitfalls. The trick will be to avoid the pitfalls, seize the opportunities, and get back home by six o’clock,” wrote Woody Allen in his book Side Effects. And once the opportunity is found, the entrepreneur knows how to take advantage of it. That opportunity for entrepreneurs today is the Rackspace Startup Program. Seize the day. Carpe Diem.
