Benjamin’s Desk a Founding Contributor to AWE Ventures
We’re excited, folks. Benjamin’s Desk, Center City’s diverse coworking community for professionals, entrepreneurs, and startups, has signed on as a Founding Contributor to AWE Ventures – Powered by Ben Franklin.
Says Benjamin’s Desk co-founder and CEO Anthony Maher, “Benjamin’s Desk is truly excited to support AWE Ventures – Powered by Ben Franklin, as a founding contributor for this transformational initiative. We believe Philadelphia must have a vested interest in the advancement of female entrepreneurship through the pursuit of educating and assembling female angel investors.”
AWE Ventures is the joint program of Ben Franklin and the Alliance of Women Entrepreneurs that is working to raise the profile of women in investing and entrepreneurship in the Greater Philadelphia area.
Adds Maher, “There are no two better organizations in our region to advance this mission. Benjamin’s Desk is not only committed to supporting AWE Ventures as a founding contributor, but we are also steadfast in the opportunity to amplify this message to our amazingly talented membership – a network where you can #InventYourFuture.” From one Ben to another, we’re with you, Anthony.
Benjamin’s Desk will host the AWE Ventures – Powered by Ben Franklin Founders Celebration on October 8, from 6:00-9:00. The event will feature keynote speaker Loretta McCarthy, Managing Director of Golden Seeds New York City and a panel discussion with companies funded through AWE Ventures.
It’s an invitation-only event to members of the AWE Ventures community – and the way to join is to donate.
