What we’re about

Hello, World!

Santa Monica New Tech in Los Angeles (USA), and our sister groups in London (UK) and Paris (France), form a community of startup founders, developers, and general technology enthusiasts.

NEW: Click here for your membership and a downloadable resource pack for entrepreneurs!

Our goal is to promote new technologies to the tech-interested public, and our mission is to provide inspiration and networking opportunities to those who want to find their passion, pursue what they love, and fulfill their potential!

Founded in 2012, our groups are now over 37,000 members strong; we have approximately 15,000 members in Los Angeles, 5,000 members in Paris, and 17,000 members in London.

We’ve hosted hundreds of pitch demo events in the United States, the United Kingdom, and France, and our group has been mentioned in news articles, books, and on TV – we’ve even been invited to The White House in Washington, DC!

Some of our members have created – or are in the midst of creating - startups and successful companies, while others have found jobs, friends, partners, and inspiration over the years.

If you would like to post an announcement or sponsor an event, please contact the SMNT Organizer about sponsorship opportunities.

If you would like to become a member simply join one of our groups and attend one of our weekly meetings – we look forward to meeting you!
