What are the roundtables? How do they work?

  1. Small round-robin discussion groups on various entrepreneurial topics

  2. Join a new table every 15 minutes with 15 other attendees

  3. Switch to a new roundtable at 11:45 am, 12 pm, 12:15 pm etc. by clicking onto the roundtable part of the Festival schedule

  4. If the roundtable already has 15 attendees, you will be asked to join the waiting room. Someone will allow you in once there is an open “seat”

What are the panels? How do they work?

  1. These are webinars with 1 moderator & 4 panelists discussing an entrepreneurial topic.

  2. All panelists are NYU students or alumni

  3. Audience will not be seen & muted. You can submit questions.

What are the workshops? How do they work?

  1. Led by one of our sponsors discussing an entrepreneurial topic

  2. These are zoom meetings - so we encourage you to turn your camera on.

  3. You will be on mute until Q&A time

What are some Zoom tips?

  1. Turn your video on when you feel comfortable (if not in a webinar)

  2. Keep your mic on mute to avoid unnecessary background noise

How does the Festival slack work?

  1. You will be invited to join when you RSVP to the Festival

  2. Only Festival attendees can join

  3. This is where important announcements will be made and attendees can ask for help

Who do I contact if I have questions not in the FAQs?
