A Guide to the Guides

We know that the influx of information and content can be overwhelming. With all the emails, tweets and the more than 350 events happening in NYC next week, how does one break it all down? Well, we’ve established a system. We’ve been creating guides around various topics that we think will be relevant to you. From Small Business to Social & Environmental Change. But what good is a system if you, our community, doesn’t know about it? So, here’s a Guide to the Guides.

If you’re interested in:
Startups & Entrepreneurship
Small Business
Social & Environmental Change
Business & Innovation
Influence

Or you’re a fan of:
Yahoo! And Social
LinkedIn & Professional Connecting

Or you want to be in one place all day:
Art & Culture Hub
Health & Wellness Hub from their perspective and Health & Wellness Hub from ours

If you’re a young adult or how old we wish we were.

If you’re not sure what to do on Valentine’s Day.

And if you like to see the big names, see our keynotes:
Dan Abrams
David Eastman
Don Tapscott
Chris Kaskie
Ben Kaufman
Carol McCall
Alex Bogusky
Jeff Dachis

Finally, if you’d rather just see one list of it all:
Events Guide

Or just what’s been recently added, here or here.

We’ll be continuing to add more guides to our blog over the next couple of days, so keep an eye out for your topic of choice. With just 2 days until the start of SMWNYC, registering now is key. Please note, there will be no waitlists or walk-ins- so get your name on the list today!

Event Guide: Startups & Entrepreneurship

We’re doing all that we can this week to help you optimize your #smw12 experience.  While each of our hubs serve as homes for specific content areas, the number of sessions we host on a specific topic far exceeds the capacity we have in our Hubs.

To help you navigate the schedule and find sessions that are relevant and interesting for you, we’re constructing a series of guides, which we hope will surface new and interesting content you might not have otherwise been aware of.
