(Gawkwire) – Atlantic.Net (http://www.atlantic.net), a privately-held leading hosting solutions provider today announced its participation as a Gold Sponsor in this year’s Orlando Startup Weekend beginning on November 9th, 2012 at Voxeo. Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of aspiring entrepreneurs passionate about learning how to successfully launch new business ventures.
This weekend-long event brings together people from all over the world to pitch their startup ideas and receive feedback from their peers. Teams form based on the top business ideas and the innovation gets kick-started with the creation of business models, design, coding, and market validation. Whether event participants found companies, find a co-founder, make connections with peers, or learn a new skill, attendees are guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the unique world of startups.
“This fantastic initiative really drives innovation in our community,” said Josh Simon, Director of Data Center Services for Atlantic.Net. “Because of its risk-free environment, Startup Weekend allows entrepreneurs to test the waters to see if their ideas would be successful in today’s business world, giving them an advantage in the market.”
Atlantic.Net was founded in 1994 by aspiring entrepreneurs Manoj “Marty” Puranik and Jose Sanchez, then both college students at the University of Florida. As once a startup itself, Atlantic.Net has always recognized the value of innovation-oriented grassroots initiatives like Orlando Startup Weekend and therefore consistently strives to support these types of endeavors in the community.
In addition to sponsoring Orlando Startup Weekend, Atlantic.Net is offering a FREE $25 trial credit of their cloud servers to all attendees of the event. Event participants can apply the promo code “Startup25” to receive the discount, including free setup, when they register for cloud hosting services with Atlantic.Net.
