Connecting industry veterans with aspiring music executives, our mentorship program furthers our mission of community building and educating the independent sector

What is the a2im mentor program?

The A2IM Mentor Program, sponsored by Entergain and Merlin, is an A2IM member-only initiative designed to grow members’ networks, and foster personal and professional development between independent music executives across all career stages. 


how does the program work?

After an application process, each accepted mentee is assigned a mentor by our Mentorship Committee, who will do their best to pair mentors/mentees with “like interests” (NOTE: Applying for the program does not guarantee a spot). 



Mentor/mentee pairs will then be required to meet for a minimum of 1 hour/month during the 6 month duration of the program, and will be invited to exclusive mentor program events.

NOTE: The A2IM Mentorship Program is strictly for A2IM Members ONLY. To find out more about becoming an A2IM member, please contact [email protected]
