Are you an entrepreneur, involved in startups, or employed in the financial industry? If so, you may have thought about the necessity of building your own financial model, yet feel it would be a daunting task. How to Build a Financial Model is a 2013 SXSW Interactive workshop, presented by Michael Robson, that aims to help others be better informed on financial models as well as to create their own basic model. To get an online sneak peek of this valuable workshop, General Assembly will be hosting a FREE live stream on February 22. This one-hour live stream will highlight some of the takeaways from the upcoming SXSW 2013 session. There will be a live Q&A, so come to the chat room with questions ready. Sign-up for this FREE live stream here: http://financialmodelsxsw.eventbrite.com/.

Mentor Ellen McGirt by Edmond LortsSXSW provides a unique forum for making valuable, one-on-one connections that can take your career to the next level. These connections sometime occur via panels, networking events and even through chance meetings in the hallways at venues where our programming occurs. Another avenue to make these valuable, one-on-one connections is the SXSW Mentor Program, which includes the Interactive, Film, and Music festivals and conferences. The SXSW Mentor Program allows registrants to participate in a seven to ten minute meeting with an industry veteran or insider. Typically, these short meetings provide a great forum for the mentor to dispense important advice, guidance, counseling and inspiration to the mentee.
