NetSquared gathers together nonprofits and activists, tech leaders and funders, and everyone who's interested in using technology for social change.
Nonprofit staffers will find a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for those who aren't experienced with technology, and many chances to ask questions of tech-experienced nonprofits and experts.
Technologists and consultants will find opportunities to put your expertise to social good, as well as the potential for lasting relationships (be they paid or volunteer) with leading organizations in your community.
Activists and community leaders will see and be given the opportunity to present on successful uses of technology for social change. Not content to simply focus on "shiny tech," we'll explore what the true potential for social change is in each case, where community organizing work can be made more effective, and where it will have to push technology forward.
Our vision for NetSquared is to make it easy, meaningful, and fun for people and organizations to get the information, visibility and in-person support they need to maximize technology for social good. Founded in 2005 we bring together civil society and the technology community.
The primary operating language of NetSquared is English, but each local group operates in their local language.
