Known as the "granddaddy of the startup and tech community," Net2NO is a meetup group founded in 2008 to connect people in the tech, social media, entrepreneurial, and non-profit worlds. If you like smart people, drinking, and enjoy being inspired by the positive energy of likeminded people, Net2NO meetups are for you. We're simply a Clearinghouse of Awesome, and believe that when you get awesome people in a room together, awesomeness ensues. Net2NO meetups are free, open to the public, and people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of tech-savviness are welcome to join. Below you'll find an overview of what to expect at a Net2NO gathering.
We try to keep meetings scheduled for the first Tuesday of every month (unless it falls on a holiday), but sometimes things just don't work out that way. There are sometimes free drinks at the bar (sponsor permitting), occasionally there's food, and there is always a group of super smart, interesting people to hang out with, plus a presentation about something innovative going on in New Orleans. Drinking + Learning + Meeting Great People. What more could you possibly need? How about three hours to soak up all the awesomeness? Done.
Here's the basic schedule of a Net2NO meetup:
6:00 - 7:00 - Check in (i.e. make yourself a nametag), grab a cocktail, and network.
7:00 - 8:30 - This is the program part of the meetup. Top off your drink, grab a seat, and hear the evening's presentation. The topics and speakers vary, but the time frame is always the same.
8:30 - 9:00 - More casual networking (and of course drinking).
It's free, it's fun, and it's casual. Show up and leave whenever you want. Bring a friend. Or make new ones. Send us a message if you have any questions, you can reach the leadership team (Adele Tiblier or Gant Laborde) through the meetup site. We always love to hear from you!
