We are closing the human connection gap

At LocalX we have a passion for building communities that bring online relationships offline to spark human connection. We’ve spent the past year building #LinkedInLocal and are now building products that help organizations of all missions create and manage communities in real life across the globe.

LocalX was born out of the #LinkedInLocal movement started by Anna McAfee in Coffs Harbour. Her post on LinkedIn inviting her local connections to meet for coffee in June 2017 has led to a people-driven movement in 60+ countries, in 350 cities and towns, with more than 450 hosts.

Our values

Our vision is for every digitally connected human to come together and find a place of belonging.  Our team is guided by the following core values which will remain consistent as our work builds and develops to meet the needs of local communities.

Authentic (always)

We bring our true selves everyday to what we say and do.

Collaborate (not competitive)

We strive to reflect be collaborative and cooperative in everything we do.

Diverse (and inclusive)

Diversity and inclusivity are at the heart of everything we do – in principle and in practice.

Respectful (of one another)

We value other people’s perspective, on our team and in our lives.

Meet Our Team
