ATHENAPowerLink is a program of ATHENA International, an organization dedicated to creating leadership opportunities for women. ATHENAPowerLink 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.

ATHENAPowerLink is offered through the Center for Advanced Entrepreneurship at Rollins College in conjunction with Athena International and our local business and community partners in the Central Florida community. The law firm of Foley & Lardner LLP serves as the founding sponsor for the local chapter.

The mission of ATHENAPowerLink is to increase the growth and profitability of women-owned businesses. ATHENAPowerLink promotes the overall mission of ATHENA International in supporting, developing and honoring women leaders, inspiring women to achieve their full potential and creating balance in leadership worldwide.

"I had this visual of my company as a big bowl of spaghetti — I couldn’t see the beginning nor the end of any situation. Thanks to this high caliber of business professionals I could call my Board of Advisors, amaZulu has been able to win much larger projects, such as Disney, Pandora – The World of Avatar and Universal’s new water park, Volcano Bay. We increased sales by 52%, raised profits by 18% and our overseas vendor deals were renegotiated, which made a huge impact on cash flow. Thank you ATHENAPowerLink, I will be forever grateful for your help in getting amaZulu to the next level of business!"
