MAILBOXES INSTALLED THIS WEEK!

The mailboxes will be installed this week. They will be next to the fire extinguisher on the wall to the right of the 2nd floor east stairs.

Once it is installed, we will no longer be accepting mail for anyone that is not a $99/month member. Any mail received will be returned to sender unless you have a mailbox.  Please let Mikenzey (downstairs at the Campus Store) know if you want to upgrade one seat to the $99 level so that you can get a mailbox. 

If you already have a $99/level seat, you will be assigned a mailbox and we will give you a key to your box once it is installed.

Mailboxes!!! It is past time to get them for our $99 members.  For those of you that are, or want to upgrade, what do you think of these?

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Salsbury-Industries-2000-Series-Brass-Front-Loading-Mailbox-with-30-Doors-2030FL/203551160?N=5yc1vZc8f3
2000 Series Brass Mailboxes have solid brass die-cast doors. Each door includes a five (5) pin cylinder cam lock with two (2) keys, a clear 1/4 in. thick glass window and a name plate to identify the tenant's name and/or box number. The doors are hinged on brass frames and are attached to the individual compartments with four (4) screws.

I'm wondering what the community would think of something I'm tentatively calling "Free Lunch Friday's". This would be a quality, locally catered meal every Friday at lunchtime and every Startup Ogden member is invited, but more importantly, every Startup Ogden member is invited to invite others to come. It would be like a weekly community lunch that we would host that's open to all. Do you think people would come? Do you think you'd come? Do you think you'd invite others? Good idea or just a time filler?

The mailboxes are here! If you get mail to this office you'll need to upgrade one seat to $99/month. Otherwise we will return mail to the sender. Please let me know who wants one. We have 25 slots I believe.

Question: we are going to mount it on the second floor wall. Any preferences where?

Zion's Bank has put together a package for startups that has a TON of free and discounted tools for entrepreneurs.  See the attached flyer. I have seen the list of stuff that this free program provides and it is pretty impressive.

They have asked for 10 companies from Startup Ogden to be given free access.  Let me know if you would like to be one of them.

+Zarin Ficklin  thinks we should move the Startup Ogden community off of G+ and over to Slack.  What are your thoughts?

Hello Startup Ogden Members!  There has been some confusion lately about what your membership does, and does not, include.  Please note:

Startup Ogden members DO receive the following Weber State privileges:

Access to the WSU Downtown facility.
Access to the WSU Secure WiFi. (username & password)
A free Continuing Education class.
A W# which allows for academic prices and tax-free savings at all the WSU Campus Stores.

Startup Ogden members do not receive tuition paying student privileges (i.e. a weber.edu email, a Wildcard or free UTA pass, or free access to gym or home games.)

Thanks!

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone in the community here for your support and participation in Startup Weekend - Ogden.  It was awesome.  If you didn't come to this one you should make plans to next time.  We had a blast and members here built some cool stuff.  +Matt Sutherland and others, you should update everyone on what you built in the comments below.  #swogden

Startup Ogden Members:

Our friend +Randall Bennett has setup a great thing here. 50+ Y Combinator Founders are coming to Ogden. These people have started, sold, built, and killed companies, and will have more collective knowledge in a room than any other time in Utah this year. He has 100 spots for Startup Founders to come.  First to sign up get them! You can sign up on Eventjoy, here is the link:

Thanks for putting this together!  

Which event should we register for?  The one titled "Conference attendee (Utah founder)"?

The HQ team is incredibly talented. They do world class work, on time and on budget. They are fun to work with, creative and I've enjoyed all of our interactions. I'd highly recommend them.
