About Mentors


From classroom teachers and professors to industry insiders and CEOs, the mentors at SXSWedu are ready to share their insights with the community.

Attendees are given the opportunity to sign up for a 15-minute one-on-one meeting with a mentor, who serves as a resource for interested registrants over the course of their session. Two weeks prior to the event, the SXSW EDU mentor sign up platform will open for registrants to schedule their meetings with mentors.
