Creativity and innovative thinking are fast becoming the most valuable assets for professionals who wish to excel in today’s competitive business environment. Such skills are particularly critical in the music industry, where new technologies and ideas compel constant change in the ways music is developed, marketed, and distributed. These trends are at the core of Berklee’s just-launched Institute. SXSW V2V supports BerkleeICE's strong focus on creative entrepreneurial innovation in music business education, and look forward to sharing their efforts with our community.

If you are in the Boston area on Monday, May 5, we'd like to invite you to join us and BerkleeICE for drinks and a few surprises from 7pm to 9pm EDT at the offices of Holland & Knight, located at 10 St. James Avenue, Boston, MA 02116 on the 11th Floor.

Techies, creatives, investors, teachers, medical professionals, musicians, businesspeople, filmmakers, gamers, students – movers and shakers from all industries – are welcome to come out and learn more about what SXSW is doing in Las Vegas this July. SXSW staff will be available to chat about recent programming additions, the final week of PanelPicker voting and upcoming announcements. RSVP here for full event details. Don't forget your business cards for this awesome networking opportunity -- HINT, your business card is where the "few surprises" come in!

Not in Boston Monday, May 5? You can catch up with us in one of the many other entrepreneurial hubs we are visiting on our meet up tour over the next few months. Next we will be at the Stitch Bar and Lounge in New Yorkfrom 6pm to 8pm EDT on Wednesday, May 7. RSVP here to attend.
