ATHENA PowerLink Baltimore is a yearlong mentorship program designed to assist women entrepreneurs with their business.
Applications are being accepted now for participation in the program.
ATHENA PowerLink 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.
ATHENA PowerLink Baltimore is headquartered at Towson University and is offered through a community partnership spearheaded by PNC Bank and local business leaders.
The yearlong program is open to any woman whose business:
