Join the Rackspace Startup Program via Startacus
by Startacus Admin
Back at the start of 2014 we announced our linkup with global cloud hosting provider Rackspace. Yep - the same Rackspace who have been delivering hosting services to businesses of all sizes and kinds around the world since 1988. And the same Rackspace who run the Rackspace Startup Program which offers selected startups 12 months of free Rackspace Cloud Hosting and Services up to a maximum spend of £1,325 per month.
As you can imagine we were well chuffed (and still are) with our linkup with the fab Rackspace folk. Why? Well because in a nutshell those fab folk have offered select Startacus members the opportunity to join the Rackspace Startup Program and avail of that amazing free hosting offer of 12 months of free Rackspace Cloud Hosting and Services up to a maximum spend of £1,325 per month.
So...since we’ve recently celebrated our 6 month love-in with the Rackspace guys, we thought it was about time that we gave you all a little reminder of what they’re offering and who they’re offering it to!
To be considered for the Startup Program and nab this amazing freebie, you’ve got to:
Have a Digital / tech / online component in your business offering
Be able to articulate your business idea and plan
Have a monetisation strategy
Have gone through an incubator or accelerator programme or at least be able to demonstrate that you have a trading / scalable business. Or perhaps you are applying for said incubator / accelerator as we speak?
Reckon you fit the bill?
Simply email us at [email protected], referencing your Startacus profile details and we will send you a quick Rackspace questionnaire to get the process moving as quickly as possible.
Although we can't guarantee that all interested startups will be approved - Rackspace’s decision is final after all - do remember, if you don't ask you don't get!
