I trust everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
As you know, we try to make Net2NO events free for all and rely on the generosity of our members to chip in to offset the costs of our wonderful location and of course the vino.
Eric Morgan from Morgan + Company kindly fitted the bill for our first Meetup and our anonymous benefactor took care of it last month. With our next Meetup fast approaching (Tomorrow!) we are still in need of sponsors. The entire cost is $150 but of course any donation would be greatly appreciated.
If you are interested in helping out please feel free to contact me by either replying to this message or you can reach me at [address removed]
Net2NO (pronounced "NetSquared New Orleans" or "Net Two Know") is known as the "granddaddy the tech and startup community" in New Orleans. Founded in 2008 as a way to get local entrepreneurs, innovators and tech people into the same room, it has grown from a mere 30 members to over 1, 100 people. We're the fourth largest Net2Local meetup group in the world (out of 75 total), and our members have started a variety of spinoff groups, events and companies including GNOCODE, NewOrleansTech.net, Teen Tech Day and TribeCon.
NetSquared Local groups hold monthly events that take place in cities around the world (ours are the first Tuesday of every month, from 6-9 pm at Marlene's on the River), convening changemakers to share ideas, learn from each other, and even collaborate on projects for real world impact. These gatherings provide a chance to connect for all those interested in the intersection of social technologies and social change. In New Orleans, it's also an opportunity for like-minded people to get together and drink, be inspired, and meet amazingly talented individuals who are doing great things in our city.
Net2NO: Innovation. Inspiration. Inebriation.
In other words, we are a Clearinghouse of Awesome. Join us.
