Net2 All-Star Invitational - Share your story and use your expertise to inspire others!
Have you ever posted a project to the NetSquared Project Gallery? Maybe submitted one to a NetSquared Challenge? Here at Net2, we are crazy in-love with these projects. We've found them inspiring and absolutely amazing, and I hope that you have too!
We're inviting all Net2 project "alumni" to enter the Net2 All-Star Invitational! We are looking for short (60-90 seconds) videos capturing your achievements and the social impact of your project. We want to hear -- and share -- your story. What's been happening with your projects and ideas since you created your project, or entered a Net2 Challenge? Tell the world about it! Make a video and enter the Invitational.
What’s In It For You? We’re so glad you asked! Here’s what we’ve got on-tap for one grand-prize winner:
- Always Comes in Handy: $500 Cash
- Your Name in Lights: Exclusive Project Placement on the New Net2 *
- Take It to the Next Level: Professional Project Consulting **
It’s Not Just About Winning
Cash is great -- obviously. But our invitational isn’t just for the winner. We want to help you tell your story far and wide, and we’re committed to showcasing your video and project.
We’ll promote all participating projects on the NetSquared blog, TechSoup Global blogs, and through our partner network of 35 NGOs worldwide. We will list your project on the Net2 platform -- currently in a “beta” state but ready to evolve into the next-gen NetSquared.org, a site strongly focused on highlighting projects and connecting social innovators with one another around mission-based collaboration.
And A Little Something Else
Video not your bag? No time to shoot one? No worries. Instead of filming your story, we want you to imagine something: imagine you have access to a huge lineup of techies with all the time and talent in the world. What would you -- and your project -- do with it?
Answering that question in an actionable way is hard. We want to help you define a need (or a want!) that a tech team can run with. We’ve got a template all ready for you -- it’ll help tell the world what your world-changing idea is. We'll help you define your problem in a way that anyone can run with it. We’ll even share our 10 favorite submissions with our friends organizing the Random Hacks of Kindness edition taking place all over the world.
Ready to roll?
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to give us a shout.
* The Net2 Platform, the next-generation NetSquared site, is set for a public launch in early 2012. It’ll be big, it’ll be splashy, and it’ll feature your project. We will exclusively highlight the winning video -- and invite technologists to help create your next-generation project.
** We’ll connect the winner to one of our NGO community specialists. The specialist will work closely with you to a create and package a Net2 project submission for the launch of the new Net2.
