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, 000 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, Closing the NOLA Gap (an education-focused version of Net2NO), Localsource.IT, NewOrleansTech.net 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 likeminded 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.
