Akron ATHENAPowerLink ® is a business advisory program designed to increase the growth and profitability of women owned businesses. The program “links” participating businesses with a board of professional advisors for one year to achieve the goals the woman business owner has identified for her business.

In 2012-2013 Akron brought ATHENAPowerLink ® to the area to provide support to women business owners. In 2016 -2017 two women owned businesses are participating in the program.
