A Panel of Experts for a Year – Focused on Your Business

ATHENAPowerLink® is Jacksonville’s premier mentoring program and we are one of only 29 licensed ATHENA cities in the nation. The program concentrates on women-owned businesses that are beyond the initial start-up difficulties, have been in existence for at least two years, and meet strict revenue and ownership criteria.  The program “links” the business owner with a panel of unpaid advisors, who agree to work with her for one year to meet her business goals and objectives.  Businesses are selected from a field of applicants by a governing body made up of volunteer community members. If awarded an advisory panel, the business owner is then linked with a group of local professionals, tailored to fit the company’s needs.

Applications accepted April 1-May 31; panels begin in August. Apply now.
