MIAMI LUXURY INDUSTRY COHORT

 

For our fifth group of mentors, we’ve recruited mentors with diverse backgrounds related to the LUXURY INDUSTRY in Miami.

When we were exploring the potential themes of our first cohort in Miami, focusing on the city’s positioning as a leading luxury capital of North America seemed obvious. 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.

We’ve regrouped various areas including FASHION, ART,CULTURE, BEAUTY, SPIRITS, TRAVEL and DECOR.

Discover all our mentors, and then complete our APPLICATION FORM by September 15th 2020 to apply to be part of the program.
