What we’re about
Welcome to New Tech Seattle, Seattle's largest ongoing monthly tech event. When anyone gets off a plane at SeaTac and says "I want to tap into the Seattle tech community," whoever they're talking to says - "You need to go to New Tech."
New Tech Seattle is where you'll make great connections, learn about new companies doing cool things, laugh, smile, and have a fun night out. And most importantly, you'll discover the people, partners, organizations, and resources to help you to build your dreams.
Our events are structured to be fast, fun and create more meaningful relationships than typical networking events.
Our community is based on an attitude of giving first and helping each other connect to the resources that will take us all further faster. ...and we have a lot of fun. :) If you're intrigued, RSVP for our next event and we'll look forward to connecting with you!
Thank you for joining the Seattle technology and startup community. We look forward to meeting you!
See you around town,

December 21st Hot Topic – Running the ADHD Marathon | Burnout from Not Slowing Down
Overexertion, taking on too much, over-scheduling to the point having too much to do and no time to do it will eventually cause life to come to a screeching halt. When you are burning the candle from both ends you are bound to burnout. Burnout is that extreme fatigue that happens when you dont take time to rest and it is much more prevalent among those with ADHD. In this meetup we will discuss strategies to prevent burnout.
Check out these articles before the meetup:
You are not alone. Come join a community of peers where you can safely discuss your neurodiverse experiences with a supportive community of peers once month.
You can attend these virtual Meetups on the third Thursday of every month. The more Meetups you attend, the more peer connections you’ll make with other professionals who have neurodiverse brains like you. Instead of being lonely in your experience, come laugh, learn, and connect with your community.
Join us to be welcomed into a community that gets you and lives with similar neurodiverse brains.
During the Meetups we’ll share struggles as well as systems and strategies to overcome your executive functioning and working memory challenges like anxiety, overwhelm, miscommunication, interrupting, inattentiveness, stress, distractibility, procrastination, paperwork fails, imposter syndrome, having to mask your neurodiversity at work, and weak organization skills.
Professionals in technology who are managing ADHD, ADD, autism, dyslexia, depression, anxiety, or other neurodivergent conditions.
