Alliance of Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) Press Release

The power of partnerships is an essential element in the Alliance of Women Entrepreneurs’ (AWE) mission to advance high-growth woman entrepreneurs in the mid-Atlantic Region.

Three new companies have made significant commitments to partner with AWE. Fox Rothschild and M&T Bank have joined as Gold Partners, and IT Solutions has committed as a Silver Partner.

“In AWE’s community of women entrepreneurs, we know that legal representation, finance and technology all play vital roles in success,” said Vicki Burkhart, AWE’s executive director. “It’s especially meaningful to have three premier organizations partner with us to support our efforts to help women founded companies grow and thrive.”

Elizabeth Sigety, Partner at Fox Rothschild, sees this new relationship as a natural fit: “We’ve been connected to AWE members for many years, and it’s time to make a strong, public commitment to the organization and women-founded companies.”

“We are proud to be AWE’s go-to banker,” said Sarah Hudak, Relationship Manager / Vice President of M&T Bank. “I know that we’ll be working closely with a group of women who have high aspirations, and look forward to helping them achieve.”

Ellie Stang, AWE president, notes that Fox Rothschild has earned a regional reputation for helping entrepreneurs find strategic solutions that empower them to grow businesses and stimulate the economy, and that M&T Bank is committed to helping business leaders reach their goals.

IT Solutions looks at technology over the long term, a critical perspective for a scaling business. “We understand how a business operates and how properly managed IT contributes to an organization's success,” says Jim Higgins, Principal at IT Solutions.

“These high-quality organizations share AWE’s vision of helping our communities to prosper by supporting entrepreneurship,” Ellie Stang said. “We look forward to fruitful and dynamic partnerships.”
