Cheers to the 18 #startups that embarked on Day 1 of Blackbox Connect yesterday!

One of our closest partners, +blackbox, has gathered an amazing array of entrepreneurial talent from Uganda to Denver to take part in their most recent cohort.

Participating entrepreneurs have moved into a "startup house" in Palo Alto for two weeks, receiving hands-on mentorship from Silicon Valley VCs, founders, designers and more before pitching to an audience of investors! The program is designed to bring awareness, training and connections to entrepreneurs from around the globe and we couldn't be more proud to play a role in it. Meet the startups and learn more about the Blackbox here:

Google I/O is soon approaching -- checkout the +Google+ Developers post below to host/attend your own I/O Extended event!
Anyone, anywhere can host or attend an I/O Extended event

With the help of hosts around the world, I/O Extended is truly a global event. We have 200+ events registered in over 70 countries. Check them out on the I/O website today (!

Can I become an I/O Extended host?
Anyone interested in bringing their local developer community together can organize an I/O Extended event. The agenda is up to you: we encourage hosts to add value to their events by preparing other activities in addition to viewing the I/O live stream. Consider including code labs, hackathons, demos and Q&A sessions with local speakers, as these all tend to be popular with I/O Extended attendees. 

If you’re joining us as an I/O Extended host this year, here are the steps you should take to get started:
-- Read through the Organizer Guide to get tips and suggestions on how to host a successful event ( 
-- Register your public event on the I/O website for increased visibility (
-- Join the I/O Extended 2015 Organizers Google+ Community to exchange ideas with other hosts (

Should I attend an I/O Extended event?
Joining an Extended event is a great networking opportunity and much more fun than watching the live stream on your own! Last year we had 80K+ attendees worldwide. Make sure to search for your location on the I/O map to find Extended events happening near you in 2015 (
