About this event

We are all devastated by the cancellation of SXSW. It is financially crushing for small businesses, solopreneurs and freelancers who bet on this work, and only time will tell how significant the impact will be on our economy.

Join General Assembly, Dos Mundos Creative and our incredible community partners, for an evening of FREE mentorship, educational programming and networking aimed to support and elevate local businesses and professionals who have been significantly impacted by the cancellation.

We'll start the afternoon by hosting small-group round table sessions for mentoring from business experts. You'll be assigned a pod and have about 30 minutes with each mentor. Subject experts include:

  • Mentor 1 TBA
  • Mentor 2 TBA
  • Mentor 3 TBA
  • Following the mentor sessions, we're putting together a panel of kickass thought-leaders to share how they have mastered "The Art of the Pivot". We know the startup mentality and running a business is hard. Beyond the obvious trials and tribulations that come from building a business, it's incredibly difficult - and important - to understand market viability and be willing to test new strategies. Local leaders will share their experiences on diversifying business and marketing plans in tough times and what it takes to keep companies a float during a crisis.
