Athena Powerlink Baltimore

ATHENAPowerLink® Baltimore is a yearlong mentorship program designed to assist women entrepreneurs with their business.

ATHENAPowerLink® Baltimore guides women business owners in defining and achieving tangible goals by providing them with access to a panel of business advisors. Each advisory panel is hand-selected based upon each woman business owner’s individual needs. These volunteer panelists serve as mentors and advisors for a 12-month period at no charge to the woman business owner and, ultimately, strive to help the woman business owner achieve growth and profitability.
