Network Under 40 exists at the intersection of friendship and business. It’s not just about meeting people, it’s about knowing people.
Network Under 40: Charlotte exists at the intersection of friendship and business. We understand that we live in a connection economy and the foundation to success in career and personal life hinges on genuine relationships with real people.
We are about mixing business and pleasure, throwing out the conventional wisdom that says you have to change who you are to ‘be professional’. Instead, we encourage you to be real, to have fun, and to cultivate authentic and meaningful relationships around social activities.
It’s not just about meeting people, it’s about knowing people. Fortunately, there are a lot of cool people for you to get to know at our events, ranging from tables for ten to several hundred person occasions – Learn More.

Charlotte Event Director
Welcome to Network Under 40: Charlotte! I am excited to bring such an amazing organization here to the Queen City. As someone who values altruism and helping others make meaningful connections, Network Under 40 was a perfect fit for me and will be an incredible opportunity for you and your network!
As someone who stays involved in the Charlotte community, you can find me anywhere from the local breweries in South End to live music events on Lake Norman. My down time is spent doing CrossFit and traveling around with my Siberian Husky, Maverick.
Our mantra speaks for itself: “Come as you are. Build rapport. Leave with a foundation for genuine relationships.” I want you to come, be involved, and make lasting connections with your peers here in Charlotte. I look forward to meeting and helping in any way I can!
