My favorite part was getting advice from my mentor during lunch, and Guy Kawasaki telling us about his life, and what drove him to where he is today.

COVID

LETTER

Dear NEST Flight 2021 Attendees & Supporters,
 
The ongoing COVID-19 situation has been an unprecedented challenge for everyone, both personally and professionally. Our hearts and thoughts go out to those who have been infected with the virus or who have lost loved ones. 

We have been closely monitoring CDC guidelines and county-wide COVID19 cases, and in order to provide a safe and comfortable experience, we’ve decided to transform NEST Flight 2021 into an EXCITING and NEW virtual conference this year.

 

Our NEST Flight 2021 virtual experience will keep our tradition of providing college age youth with a free, high quality event where attendees will find inspiration and motivation from our keynote speakers, workshops and panels, walk away with tools to continue building their career journeys, and build their networks by connecting with other young professionals and company representatives through a fun networking experience. 

2020 has been a year of many changes and difficult challenges, but I’m confident NEST Flight 2021 will provide a positive and rewarding experience for all of our young attendees! 

We look forward to ‘seeing you’ online in March of 2021! 

 

Best, 

Jacob Martinez
