On the heels of our sponsorship of last month’s Startup Weekend LA, Factual will be one of the sponsors of the next two Startup Weekends. Next week is Global Entrepreneurship Week, a Kauffman Foundation-founded initiative that annually introduces millions of young people around the world to entrepreneurship. In over 25 cities around the world – from Seattle to Beirut – entrepreneurs and developers will gather to participate in a 54 hour event to build new companies, products, and applications.

Once again, Factual will be hosting a developer contest, open to teams in all participating cities, and will be awarding iPads to every member of the winning team. Interested? See our contest page for details.

We’re excited to continue our relationship with Startup Weekend, which is definitely becoming a hot bed for entrepreneurial and developer innovation. We’re looking forward to seeing what comes out of this one!
