LUXURY INDUSTRY COHORT
Mentoro is all about creating connections. Often, we target the luxury industry as an ideal environment for our career, but simply need some guidance to better understand the opportunities the industry can offer. Sometimes you just need to have a conversation – a cup of COFFEE – with more seasoned professionals to hear about their background and experiences.
In this LUXURY COHORT, we’ve regrouped mentors from various areas of expertise including FASHION, ARTS, CULTURE, BEAUTY, SPIRITS and TRAVEL. Discover our roster of mentors below, and then complete our APPLICATION FORM by September 15th 2020 to apply to be part of the program.
