The outdoor startup market

The plaza in front of City Hall became "Startup Village" today in downtown Mountain View, Calif., where CEOs, developers and venture capitalists gathered to see the work from more than two dozen nascent companies.

The outdoor festival was being held as part of The Startup Conference, a program on all things startups, ranging from finding jobs to finding funding, everything in between.
