Netrepid Donates $5K In VPS Hosting Services To Startup Weekend Winners

Netrepid announced today that it will be providing over $5,000 in virtual private server (VPS) hosting to three Harrisburg, PA-area entrepreneurial teams that were awarded top prizes at Startup Weekend Harrisburg, held the previous weekend at Harrisburg University.

The three winning teams were each awarded the same prize package, with different subscription lengths based on the order of finish. Specifications for the VPS hosting package includes:

  • Windows Server 2008R2 or 2012 (winners will be automatically upgraded to 2012 if available)
  • 4Gb of RAM
  • Single Processor
  • 200Gb of Storage

The winning startup team will receive subscription to Netrepid’s VPS hosting services for a period of 12 months following the setup of their account. The second place and third place teams will receive subscriptions for 6 months and 3 months once they setup accounts with Netrepid, respectively.

“VPS hosting is one of our most in-demand services because each plan can be customized to meet the demands of any business,” said Sam Coyl, President and CEO of Netrepid. “For startups, VPS hosting is an ideal platform to build the technology of their business because it can start small and scale very quickly.”

Coyl was one of 13 Harrisburg-area entrepreneurs who served as coaches during the Startup Weekend event, where area entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs get hands-on experience building the various areas of a new venture and determine if their startups are viable. In addition to offering a prize to the top startups from the weekend, Netrepid also served as an event sponsor.

“We were thrilled to have Sam and Netrepid sponsor our inaugural event,” said Chuck Russell, Co-organizer of Startup Weekend Harrisburg. “I greatly appreciate their contribution and commitment to the Central PA startup community.”

According to published reports, Startup Weekend Harrisburg 2014 is scheduled for October 3 to October 5, 2014. Netrepid’s involvement in Startup Weekend Harrisburg 2014 will be forthcoming.
