About Networking


Whether you’re seeking mentorship, new connections, or friends with shared interests, SXSW EDU provides a road to your goals.

Networking opportunities during the annual Conference & Festival come in a variety of forms, both casual and formal, to empower attendees to accomplish their networking goals. Opportunities are designed to support every type of networker, those who thrive in one-on-one settings, and those who enjoy larger group environments.
