#OHUBHOUSE + HBCU@SXSW SCHEDULE

March 8-12. The road to Opportunity Hub’s 2019 Edition of HBCU@SXSW is an adventure in itself. From an interactive student application 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 #OHUBHouse, 25+ events featuring 50+ expert speakers, 9 dedicated student recruitment events, 6 official sessions, 1-on-1 time between students and recruiters; and VIP experiences for our host committee and their special guests, including our 5th Annual Inclusive Innovators, Investors & Influencers Reception & Dinner.
