From classroom teachers and professors to industry insiders and CEOs, the mentors at SXSW EDU are ready to share their insights with the community.
Attendees are given the opportunity to sign up for a 12-minute, one-on-one meeting with a mentor, who serves as a resource for interested registrants over the course of their session. In February, the SXSW EDU mentor RSVP platform will open for registrants to schedule meetings with mentors.
