Countdown to SXSW 2017

Probably the most important aspect of the event is the opportunity to mingle with industry leaders in the various fields to make new friends, contacts, and take away ideas and inspiration to make your goals a reality. The festival provides many forums for which to make important connections, discover new opportunities and ideas, learn about new funding available and new jobs. Featured events include Meet Ups and Lounges and Parties.

“Meaningful, career-enhancing, one-on-one connections are one of the most valuable aspects of attending SXSW,” shares their website.
