In honor of National Mentoring Month, Licensing International and sponsor Octane5 have announced the licensing industry's first global mentoring program to bring the expertise of global industry veterans to young professionals.  

"Knowledge sharing and mentoring are such powerful tools that have the potential to transform lives, and so we knew as industry leaders we wanted to create a platform to encourage just that," says Maura Regan, president, Licensing International. "Our mentorship program will build not only meaningful connections between longstanding professionals and young newcomers, but also offer important opportunities for growth and development." 

With an initial focus on the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Japan and China, industry professionals and Licensing International members can sign up at After enrolling, Licensing International will match participants with their mentor or mentee through the program. 

The Licensing International Mentoring Program aims to bring value and career growth to licensing experts of all levels across many businesses and categories. Participating mentees will have an opportunity to gain wisdom from an experienced professional. In contrast, mentors have the chance to invest in an up-and-coming professional who can benefit from their skilled guidance. 

"When we connected with Licensing International to sponsor the upcoming mentorship program, we were delighted to be able to facilitate connections between professionals in our industry," says Mike Dunn, co-founder and president, Octane5. "Partnering with Licensing International allows us to offer a space where professionals new and old can form working relationships that otherwise wouldn't be possible."
