What is the SXSW Mentor Program?

Mentor Sessions were a new addition for the 2012 event and allow SXSW registrants to sign up with a well-established industry professional for a short one-on-one meeting to discuss career-related advice. These Mentor Sessions are extremely important because they will help formalize many of the networking processes that have happened organically at SXSW in the past.

SXSWedu:

This is the first year SXSWedu is hosting a Mentor Program to serve as a platform to facilitate 10-minute, one-on-one meetings between an experienced professional and a novice attendee interested in learning more about a particular area of interest. Serendipitous interactions between individuals can make all the difference in the spark of a new idea, decisions or path. This program seeks to support and promote these meaningful collisions further with a lineup of 50 mentors.
