What is NetSquared

NetSquared is focused on the intersection of technology and social impact. We create opportunities online and offline for all those involved in creating change to connect: whether you are a nonprofit or a foundation, a designer or a developer, a changemaker or an entrepreneur.


Today the global community stands witness to a momentous time in history where progressive change is not only necessary, but imminent. At NetSquared, we recognize that mandate and believe the social Web is key to making change. NetSquared works toward this goal by mobilizing individuals and communities, providing Web-based tools, and awarding financial support to leverage social action projects.

  • Fostered monthly face-to-face meetups for social innovators in 50+ cities around the globe and growing
  • Incubated hundreds of social action projects in various stages of development
  • Awarded over $370,000 in financial support through prized-based Challenges

  • And much, much more
