About Network After Work

Network After Work is America's premier face-to-face networking organization. The company was founded in 2009 with a handful of recurring networking events in a few select cities and has since expanded to over 85 cities with well over 6 million members. Network After Work avoids the usual grind of networking in conference rooms and trade show lobbies to instead host exciting monthly, bi-monthly, and special networking events in different cool local venues with a relaxed atmosphere. Business owners, entrepreneurs and career-minded professionals gather over drinks and casual conversations to share resources, contacts, and strategies that help support each other's career and business goals. Network After Work offers a range of memberships, partnership opportunities, events, advice, and even a mobile app that are all designed to help propel members and event attendees to the next level of their professional objectives.

Network After Work was founded by Samantha Ballenger and James Miller. Their complimentary talents have combined to propel the organization to quickly become America's premier face-to-face business networking company.
