About BeLocal

The N2 Company began its journey to print media powerhouse status through its flagship product, Stroll magazines. These custom publications, which serve well-established neighborhoods, are the perfect vessel to connect residents to their neighbors down the street. But N2 realized a need wasn’t being met: informing the newest homebuyers on places to go and people to see in their area, outside of the neighborhood.

Enter BeLocal: the comprehensive guide for all new movers to the greater community. The first BeLocal magazine hit new movers’ mailboxes back in 2018. Since then, we’ve expanded to serve residents in more than 120 communities across the country.

In 2004, best friends Duane and Earl launched The N2 Company with nothing but their savings and a shared vision: to build a nationwide business that creates financial wealth for everyone involved. Twenty years and multiple product lines later (BeLocal included), N2 is still co-founder-owned, serves 25,000 clients, and has a presence in 49 states. N2 has been named one of the fastest-growing private companies by Inc. Magazine eight times (Inc. 5000) and earned countless culture awards from Fortune, Entrepreneur, Inc., Glassdoor, and more. To date, we’ve donated more than $23 million to fight human trafficking through our giving program, N2GIVES.
