I wanted to post a couple of links to nonprofit organizations I volunteer for that would interest this group: http://startupweekend.org
I am the Houston Startup Digest curator and it is a once weekly free and non-promotional listing of Houston events geared towards technology, startups, and entrepreneurship.
I am also organizing the first Startup Weekend Houston and this 3 day conference focuses on taking people through a crash course on how you start with an idea and end with a company, including pitching, writing a business plan, creating a marketing strategy, and presenting to investors. These events are held around the world.
I want to clearly state that neither of the links above are for profit, they aren't my full time job (my signature/profile will tell you that one), and I am posting here because I believe startups are the foundation to a healthy regional economy and so focus my volunteer time and effort on supporting startups and helping connect small businesses with each other and with investors to keep Houston's economy strong. Feel free to ask me any questions and if you are interested in getting involved then let me know!
