Rackspace Startup Program Global Startup Event Guide: September 2013

September brings us the first day of autumn. International Literacy Day takes place on the 8th, observed on the 9th and the celebration will continue throughout the month. This year, the International Reading Association (IRA) has adopted the theme “Invent Your Future.” Hispanic Heritage Month also takes place in September. International Day of Peace on the 21st provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date. In 1889, Nintendo was founded, manufacturing playing cards. And, in the words of funny guy Groucho Marx, “My favourite poem is the one that starts ‘Thirty days hath September’ because it actually tells you something.”

Within the startup movement, there are plenty of events happening globally in September 2013.

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!

John McKenna loves startups and is a Space Cowboy with the Rackspace Startup Program. He also crafts customer stories and produces really cool videos for the Customer Reference Program. John enjoys telling stories through his writings…and loves the beach, the ranch, his dog Blue and most of all his three beautiful daughters.
