The Global Startup Community is meeting in Rio
Right now im in Rio de Janeiro for the StartupWeekend Organiser summit and the Global Entrepreneurship Congress. Im truly inspired by all the events and people meeting together in Rio and the impact they are having in their local communities.
What I especially like about the meetup here in Rio are the circles behind the people attending the event. The right idea, or event presented to the right people attending here in Rio could really have meaningful global impact in creating better future companies with more value.
On top of that I especially like that in Rio they have convinced people like Brad Feld, Dave McClure, Marc Nager and Andrew Hyde to share their stories of projects that are considered best for startup communities (e.g. accelerators like Techstars, 500 startups and StartupWeekends) and encouraging people to promote them.
