What we’re about
New Tech Tacoma is a sister event to New Tech Northwest's New Tech Seattle and New Tech Eastside events. NTS and NTE are Seattle's largest ongoing monthly events because we have a neighborhood block party vibe when everyone interested in innovation is welcome to attend.
You're invited to join our New Tech Northwest community with over 30,000 members and 600+ monthly attendees at New Tech events. Join us to connect with the people and resources that will take your tech career or company to the next level! Please join this group for great complimentary fun, food, drinks, presentations and connections with the Tacoma tech community.
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."
It's your community, we just love it and give everyone a place to play together. Want to know more? Visit our website, watch our past presentation videos (from companies you've never heard of as well as companies including Nordstrom, ebay, GoDaddy, Zillow, Moz and Microsoft) and recorded live streams of events on our Facebook page.
Thanks for joining the group. We look forward to seeing you at New Tech Tacoma!
See you around town,

- ADHD Oasis Community: Managing Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria [VIRTUAL]Link visible for attendees
Join us on Thursday March 21st, for New Tech’s ADHD Oasis Meetup: Managing Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria
March 21st Hot Topic – Managing Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria
Understanding and managing rejection sensitive dysphoria (RSD) is really important, especially for adults with ADHD who might struggle with emotional regulation. RSD can cause intense pain in response to feeling rejected or criticized, and it’s tough because traditional therapies might not always help. People with RSD tend to have strong emotional reactions to negative feedback or feeling left out, and others might see them as being overly sensitive or perfectionistic. During this meetup we will talk about signs of RSD and ways to find personalized strategies that really make a difference in how it affects everyday life and happiness.
