More events of note for you starters!

Enjoy Startup Weekend?  If you did then one of the main reasons was probably the opportunity you had to meet other starters and build relationships.  Well, it may be a few months before an official Startup Weekend event comes back around to RVA but that does not mean the region and RVA do not have some sweet ways to plug in now!

Looking for another 54 hours of madness?!  Head out to Charlottesville, the birthplace of our own Startup Weekend leadership team, to make progress on your next big idea or be a help to others.   Kicks off Friday October 26th with all the information you need to know at http://charlottesville.startupweekend.org/ .  If you are still too tired from September’s RVA Startup Weekend then consider these other interesting October treats!
