Hello,
I'm trying to get a custom URL for my business but it says "Many people have the same name. Add a few extra letters or numbers to this URL to get one that is unique for you." yet the URL I am trying to register gives 404 which means it's not even used, and I am sure that nobody uses the same name

Despite the fact that I provided all required data to verify my account, Why would I be needing to add more letters or characters into my custom URL?!

Can anyone help me out with this?!

Since I’ve got introduced to Jekyll and started blogging with it, I’ve been playing around with it to get the most out of it… There are so much that you can do with this little yet powerful generator… That’s why I decided to move my full site not only the blog to be using Jekyll…

Launch a Startup in 54 Hours.

Ever wondered what it takes to be an entrepreneur?
The professional and personal challenges, the high and lows, the failures and the success?

Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 400 past events in 100 countries around the world in 2011.

The non-profit organization is headquartered in Seattle, Washington but Startup Weekend organizers and facilitators can be found in over 200 cities around the world. From Mongolia to South Africa to London to Brazil, people around the globe are coming together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams, and start companies.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!

Visionary Entrepreneur & Internet Evangelist
Introduction
Based on Alexandria with a Degree in Sociology and a Diploma in Human-Computer Interaction Hashem initially started his career as a Web and Graphic Designer for a firm in Alexandria that specialized in Cutting Edge Web Technologies. Always a visionary entrepreneur at heart with several involvements since his teen years like founding a computer hardware company at the age of eighteen, Hashem has since founded and operated three design agencies.

In late 2010 Hashem Joined eSpace Technologies and lead their design team and managed to work closely with some of TechStars graduates. In 2011 Hashem joined the Startup Weekend Global Facilitators Team and started to evangelize the startup ecosystem in his own town and since then he has been known as the Godfather of Alexandrian Startups. He has involved in and initiated several Startup Communities in Alexandria including SUMUAlex & Alexandria Startup Club with a mission to foster and empower entrepreneurship eco-system within Alexandria.

Hashem believes that entrepreneurship is what will take the Egyptian economy to the next level and it is exactly what fits the Egyptian post-revolution economy. Startups should get all the support needed to grow and expand by the ecosystem community leaders & of course the government and that what will boost Egypt's economy.
