After such a successful SXSW V2V Mentor Program in 2013, I am thrilled to be among many talented mentors for the 2014 SXSW V2V event. This is really an impressive crew of thought leaders from a variety of industries across the country. No matter where you are in the process of pursuing your dreams, there are mentors that have travelled the path before you and will help you tackle the next steps. The SXSW V2V extensive Mentor Program is the cornerstone of SXSW V2V, designed to provide support, advice and expertise to take your idea to the next level.
But why is mentoring so important to me?

“I hope that fashion (or design) has given a face to technology. It is the communication between the function of a product to the consumer. Regardless what anyone says, visual communication is one of the most powerful tools. It evokes an emotional reaction – great tech products know and use this.”

SXSW provides a great forum for making valuable, one-on-one connections that can take your career to the next level. These connections sometime occur via panels, via networking events and even via chance meetings in the hallways at the Austin Convention Center.
Another avenue to make these valuable, one-on-one connections is at the SXSW Mentoring Program, which was launched at the 2012 event. The SXSW Mentor Program allows registrants to participate in a seven minute meeting with an industry veteran / insider. I am a huge advocate of mentoring programs and SXSW makes it so that you can meet with almost any professional with experiences you’re looking to learn from. Search and signup for the SXSW Mentor Programs are here.
Whether you’re a first timer or a SXSW Veteran there’s always something new and exciting to look forward to for SXSW. We’ve compiled a list of events you should consider going to no matter what your focus is or industry. And as always we hope you have a great SXSW.
Thanks! We'll be in touch soon.
