NetSquared Regional Events

In addition to holding monthly meetups, NetSquared's local organizers and partners hold conferences, barcamps, and other events for the nonprofit tech community. Check 'em out!

What are NetSquared Camps?

The NetSquared camp format builds on the success of the NetSquared Local program and draws inspiration from the participant-driven unconference/barcamp movement.

NetSquared camps bring together nonprofits/NGOs, developers, designers and entrepreneurs into a shared space to (a) demonstrate projects; (b) build stuff together; (c) find sustainable collaborations; and (d) forge long-lasting relationships.

Camp participants collaborate on a shared challenge or topic area. The event provides a platform for community members who are interested in using technology for social impact to identify promising projects, move ideas forward and share and learn together. Camps may feature elements of a standard conference such as speakers, scheduled sessions or talks while also featuring elements of an "unconference" or presentations and discussions that are formed in real-time at the event.
