This panel is open to Second Rounders only.

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.
