March 8-11. The road to Opportunity Hub’s 2019 Edition of HBCU@SXSW is an adventure in itself. From an interactive student membership campaign to sponsor procurement and custom event creation, there is not a dull moment. Once we are on the ground, the momentum continues over four days with our very own venues, events featuring 50+ expert speakers, 12 dedicated student recruitment events, 3 official SX sessions, 1-on-1 time between students and recruiters; and VIP experiences for our partners and their special guests, including our 5th Annual Inclusive Innovators, Investors & Influencers Reception & Dinner. This is the onramp to the future of work and opportunity for all.
