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.

SXSW EDU:

The mentor program at SXSW EDU facilitates purpose-driven, one-on-one connections between experienced professionals and solution-seeking attendees.

During a mentor session, attendees sign up for a 12-minute, one-on-one meeting with a mentor of their choice. In February, the SXSW EDU mentor RSVP platform will open, allowing registrants to schedule mentor meetings.
