Mentee material?

You know enough to be handed problems way beyond your reach.
But what if you don’t even know how to phrase your issue?

Why should you apply?

"If you do have this desire to give everything you have, to progress, to be a better product manager. Then, by all means, you have to join."

Please keep in mind

This is a semi-structured program.
As every mentor, mentee and a match are different; we can not provide a fully structured program.
We at Product League are here to guide on how to find the right structure for you and your mentor.

Mentoring can’t be casual. If you join Product League, we expect you to stay with us for the entire 4 months.
This is a professional obligation, and we trust you to treat it as such. If you’ve planned a meeting, please make sure to get there, and on time. Your mentor’s time is valuable, and they’re donating it to you.

Your mentor is here to guide you on your product dilemmas and become a better product manager.
They are not here to help you find a job but to grow in it.

What Leaguers Mentors Mentees say?

The best Product Management mentoring program out there, no contest. Highly recommended for PMs of all Experience levels, Industry backgrounds, or even global locations (-: I've been a mentor for 4 batches now, and I'm hoping it's only the beginning. Mentees and Mentors are all amazing people, extremely helpful and professional. Everyone is eager to learn, teach, and share - And Moriya & the team are doing an incredible job creating opportunities to do so. Mentees & Mentors both get tools, knowledge, and connections that last way beyond the formal few months of the program. Whatever your career goals or starting points are, you will find a place for you in this program.

Yuval Eitan, Product Management & UX Expert (Tel Aviv)

I was honored to participate in the Product League program as a mentor. I’ve been doing it unofficially for several years now, collaborating & brainstorming with other PMs on products they are working on, as well as my own, sharing information and experiences. Being a PM is one of the most challenging roles out there and often we need someone to share our pains, thoughts and learn from each other’s experience, so this program hit the spot! The overall experience within the Product League program was superb! I met great people and struggled together to find the best way to approach challenges on our daily life as PMs. though the current program session ended, we continue to meet and share knowledge on a weekly basis. I would like to thank the entire Product League team and especially Moriya for escorting us along the way! I would be honored to rejoin again 🙂

Lior Rishti, Lead Product Manager at Siemens, (Tel Aviv)

Product League program is an excellent platform to meet and know product managers from all over the world, from diverse industries and diverse background. It's a way to contribute and share from your own experience and expertise with others and learn at the same time. It's a great platform to empower the product community and get exposure to new trends, ideas and methodologies in a rapid changing world. It's also helpful for networking. I would highly recommend this program for both novice PM and experienced PM to join and contribute as a mentee or a mentor

Getting
In

I got an email saying that I am qualified to join the program. What's now?

Congratulations… Well, almost! To enroll in the program, you’ll have to follow the link sent to you in the email and pay your $169 program fee (mentees only) within 7 days. And then? Welcome aboard!

How much does it cost to enroll as a Mentee?

The program fee is $199, for the four-month program including special events, Leaguers swag and, endless support.

Are Mentors being paid for there volunteering work?

Mentors are not offered with any kind of payment or reimbursement.

when we are taking a fee, we are committing to deliver everyone involved, a solution that is worth that fee. It means the mentee has to feel like they get worth-enough value and you, as a mentor, feel that you get a value more prominent than the ‘I am giving back to the community’ feeling. We are actually challenging ourselves to provide you with a significant enough value (how to become a leader in my field? how can I become the best manager I can be?) so that you’ll feel that you are paid with a value that is higher than $169.

Being
Matched

How does Product League match mentors and mentees?

Shhh… It’s a secret! The first thing we at Product League build when launching the program was our proprietary algorithm. This matching machine was created based on a deep understanding of the PM’s career cycle, fields of interest, strenghths, and weaknesses. When applying to Product League, you are asked to answer some questions about your present and your future. Our algorithm matches this with some magic and presents you with your match.

Do I choose who to be paired with?

In the algorithm, we trust! Here at Product League, all our mentors are product experts, and all our mentees are passionate productizers. Our matches are made in product-heaven, and no request are accepted.

What happens if I am not satisfied with the match?

We are here for you! If you are not fully satisfied with your match, please let us know asap. It may be that you need some extra information to better size the opportunity or, it may be that we made a mistake. This way or another, we are here to make sure you’ll have the best experience, League style.
