Mentoring at SXSW V2V


I guess spending almost 10 years at anything makes one a bit of an expert — if in persistance (…if not entrepreneurship, business, finance, law, networking, marketing…)!


And SXSW V2V agrees! I’m incredibly excited to be a mentor at the inaugural fest in Las Vegas, NV, August 11-14, 2013.

What is SXSW V2V? Like the Austin SXSW, there will be keynotes (I’m excited for Tony Hsieh‘s), plenty of educational marketing, startup and tech sessions, along with a variety of mentors to counsel on your ideas, projects, portfolios, pitches, startups, and aspirations. I haven’t even gotten to the parties yet.


Why Vegas? The downtown tech scene is growing by leaps and bounds — think Zappos for just a start — and this post gives some other great reasons this event is just the beginning.


What are the sessions about? “The goal here is for a less established professional to have a chance to ask career-related advice from a well established professional.”


How do you sign up for a session? “Attendees will be invited to sign up for Mentor sessions before SXSW V2V begins (this interface will go live closer to the actual event).”


I can’t wait to see you there — and stay tuned for info on discounted badges.
