Tech Tuesdays Networking Series Is Coming To Atlanta: Here’s What You Need To Know

by hypepotamus

A little work mixed with a little play. That’s what James Chapman is bringing to founders and creatives across Atlanta with the launch of Tech Tuesdays

Chapman, the founder and CEO of Plain Sight, is hosting a series of free events for those looking to connect more into the Atlanta technology scene. Starting in October, attendees can start their day with “hoops and networking” during a co-ed pick up basketball game on Georgia Tech’s campus before heading to free “coffee and co-working” at We Work in Midtown. The goal is to not only provide people with a new space to get some work done, but also network with others in the startup community. 

The first several Tech Tuesdays will also have evening networking and conversations hosted by local ecosystem builders like Kabila, Techqueria, and BLCK VC

Chapman, a Chattanooga native who moved to Atlanta in 2021, started the concept of Tech Tuesdays in Miami and Detroit (where Chapman previously lived) before bringing it to Atlanta. The event series has taken off in other markets over the last several months, with the Miami edition seeing 1,000 registrations between April and August alone.

Building In Plain Sight 

You’ll notice the Tech Tuesdays event registration pages aren’t built on traditional websites like the Eventbrites or Meetups of the world. Chapman designed the landing pages for his startup Plain Sight to fill an important gap in the event space. 

Specifically, Plain Sight helps event hosts and sponsors get the information they need to pull off a successful event. Unlike Eventbrite or other popular ticketing apps out there, Plain Sight gives event coordinators data on the “skills, interests, professions, type of companies” represented by attendees. This helps not only with future programming needs, but also helps event sponsors make smarter decisions around where they spend their marketing dollars. 

While event hosts are often desperate to find sponsors, they rarely ask the crucial questions around budget and goals upfront. Plain Sight is designed to bridge that gap and make it easier for sponsors and coordinators to connect.  

Chapman told Hypepotamus that this is a “win-win” for all those trying to pull off in-person gatherings. He said the startup has already attracted big partner names like Cadillac, Zendesk, and AWS.
