The event supports PCAE programming that encourages integrity, excellence, civic engagement and creative collaboration through two powerful programs:
Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) – transforms middle and high school students into real business owners and real entrepreneurial success stories. The yearlong afterschool program gives students a fun, project-based, hands-on, experiential education.
ATHENAPowerLink® NAWBO® Delaware Valley – offers women-owned businesses (2+ years in business) the opportunity to connect with—and receive advice and support from a panel of highly skilled, volunteer advisors, for the period of one year. Business owners learn how to develop networks, access capital and implement best practices.
Gala proceeds support and expand educational leadership for emerging and established entrepreneurs in the Philadelphia region.
We are a 501c (3) non-profit educational organization. We provide emerging and established entrepreneurs with opportunities to develop and grow their businesses through our ATHENAPowerLink® NAWBO® Delaware Valley program and our Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) Philadelphia.
