Net2NO August Meetup: Neighborland.org

Join us at 12 Bar on Fulton August 2nd for your monthly dose of innovation, inspiration and inebriation! We'll hear from founders of Neighborland.org, "a fun and easy way for residents to suggest new businesses and services that they want in their neighborhood."


It's a grassroots, open platform built for residents, community leaders, and developers to talk about the future of New Orleans. The goal? To empower residents to help shape the development of the city.

Sound like something we could use? Absolutely. "It's a great tool for residents to voice new ideas for vacant commercial real estate, existing public space, and development projects in the works. As our community grows, entrepreneurs, property owners, and developers will be able to hear the collective needs and wants of a neighborhood, and build relationships with their future customer base."

And what better place to launch a project like this than "New Orleans, a city that embraces new technology and smart growth, and supports better resident-powered tools." They plan to expand the service to other cities this year, but they're getting it off the ground here, and you can help.

Bring your laptop to the meetup, so you can check out the site in realtime, ask questions, give feedback, share ideas, and generally do what Net2NO members do: help each other.

The project is supported by the  Tulane Urban Innovation Challenge and was incubated at  Civic Center. Founded by Candy Chang, Tee Parham, and Dan Parham, the team includes Community Director James Reeves and Community Manger Alan Williams. 

As always, the meetup is 6-9 pm (one hour of cocktails/conversations, one hour of presentations, one more hour of drinking/networking). Free, open to the public, and a great way to meet some inspiring, awesome people.

    Presentation was too short, too quick and there was no Q & A afterward. Too much before presentation that could have been after it. Been awhile since I've been but I thought the presentations started a half hour after the Meetup began.
