I’m so excited about these new groups! (Originally posted on the NetSquared blog.)
Every month, the NetSquared community comes together offline in cities around the world at Net Tuesday events to mix, swap stories and ideas, build new relationships, and collaborate. There are 6 new Net Tuesdays to introduce, and I hope you’ll join me in welcoming: Abidjan, Asheville, Charleston, Hamburg, Lomé, and Nairobi!
Welcome New Net Tuesdays!
These new Net Tuesday groups have bumped the total number of local NetSquared groups around the world over 30 – that’s a wide network of innovators and social changemakers! We are so thrilled to have these groups coming together to work on local projects and would love to have your city start a Net Tuesday group, too!
Are you in one of these cities? If so, connect with the local organizers to find out about the next events, how to help, and spread the word!

Two Net Tuesdays of Note
There are two Net Tuesday groups where the local organizers have gone above and beyond to revamp the group, get it off the ground, and really create a vibrant focal point for the local community.
Net2 Atlanta, organized by Erica Stanley, has a shiny new online space and the offline events are creating great opportunities for Atlanta community members to come together and share. If you’re in the area, check it out!
Net2 New Orleans, organized by Jessika Rohloff and Damian Lamana, put together a sponsored trip to SXSW complete with tour bus and after party! Their work has catalyzed the local community looking for technology and social change projects. In New Orleans? Check it out!
What’s Net Tuesday?
Net Tuesdays are monthly events, organized by local volunteers in over 30 cities around the world. These events are opportunities for anyone interested in the intersection of technology and social benefit to come together, share ideas, learn from each other, and collaborate on projects. Funders, programmers, developers, educators, nonprofit staff and government agencies are all involved. If you want to see if your city already has a Net Tuesday, click here.
