Ready to Mentor?
You know enough to lead and inspire others to solve complex problems.
You feel ready to be the guider you could only dream of having.
Who should apply?
We’re looking for PMs with 7+ years of experience in product management who are passionate about leading the next generation of product professionals.
As most of the program is held online: wherever you are based in, you are welcome!
Why should you apply?
Product League is for product managers who want to learn. Being a mentor isn’t just about leading the other;
it’s about growing your skills and learning from others. You might surprise yourself with what you don’t know.
Product League is a hand-picked community of PM professionals.
With the years, it will only get stronger – and you’re a part of that. We offer you eLearning materials, Product Leaguers Only meetups and an exceptional mentoring experience.
Plesae 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 mentee.
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.
Applications to batch Winter 2020 are now closed.
(Next batch to be open on September 2020)
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 $110 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 $110, for the four months program including special events, Leaguers swag and, a product management book.
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 $110.

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.
