Helping young women build purposeful and profitable marketing careers

College doesn't prepare you for the real world.

We do.

Athena Accelerator

We know what it feels like to get rejection after rejection when applying to jobs. We know what it feels like to look at job descriptions and not feel qualified for any of them.

Even with great resumes and a strong job hunting strategy, most college graduates can’t find work in their field or even one that requires a college degree.

Don’t worry, you’re not alone and we’re here to help.

College leaves you unprepared for real life and we’re on a mission to change that.

With Athena Accelerator, we’re closing the gap we once had to leap over so you don’t have to.

From graduating college early, to starting her full-time marketing job before she graduated, Natalie is used to being the youngest person in the room. 


After experiencing the frustration of trying to get an unpaid internship in college, let alone a paying position, she set out to discover how to turn application rejections into job offers. A half a dozen internships and a full-time job offer later, she knew she had cracked the code.


Natalie started her full-time marketing job at 20 years old while she was still in college. By 22 she was managing partnerships for that company’s largest accounts, including some of the world’s largest public companies like Google and Amazon.


Now she’s found the problem she wants to dedicate her life to solving: the lack of real-life career skills taught in higher-education. She founded Athena Accelerator to start helping the women that system has failed.

Athena was the goddess of wisdom, courage, strategic warfare, justice, skill strength and the crafts (we know, quite the long list). 

She was a ruthless warrior who was praised for her compassion. She embodied wisdom and rational thought.

Most importantly, Athena guided heroes on their journey.

That’s what we’re doing with Athena Accelerator. Guiding heroines (that’s you) on their career journey.

Now you never have to feel confused or alone at such a pivotal time in your life: getting your first real job. You now have Athena to guide you every step of the way.
