Second Rounders Panel: Now What?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

By this point in the weekend, chances are you’ve got a notebook chock full of industry secrets, a rolodex full of new contacts, and only a faint memory of what sleep feels like. So now that you’ve met new contacts and rattled your brain with new ideas, what’s next? Join these AFF alumni – all of whom were once in your shoes – as they provide insight on how to use the competition as a calling card, how it has launched their own careers, and how it can do the same for you.

This panel is open to Second Rounders only.
