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


Be paired with an industry veteran who works in your field! Meet monthly with your designated mentor (we carefully review applications to ensure you are matched with someone relevant to you where possible), and join networking sessions with wider program participants.

Give back to the independent music community! Share your years of experience with a fledgling executive. No strict pre-requisites, just that you have been working in the industry for a number of years and have wisdom to impart.

What is the a2im mentor program?

The A2IM Mentor Program 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).

program commitment​

As a mentor it is your responsibility to initiate the first call with the mentee (and possibly others) and spend a minimum of 1 hour/per month, throughout the cycle, working together either via zoom, the phone, or IRL. A member of the Mentor Committee will check in with you and your mentee throughout the cycle.

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.
