Supporting the next generation of women entrepreneurs
The Athena Center's entrepreneurship programs are designed to introduce select high-school and Barnard students to entrepreneurship, enable them to experiment with entrepreneurship through internships and hands-on work experience, and to provide resources and mentorship for those young women who have or are launching their own ventures.
In the process, we hope to create successful pedagogical models for young women and to build the Athena community to include dedicated entrepreneurs who are willing to share their expertise with talented Barnard women.
Our 3-step approach provides resources to Barnard students at all stages of the entrepreneurship pipeline. These programs provide students with exposure to the entrepreneurial mindset and resources to develop and build a venture.
