Athena Technology Acquisition Corp.

General Information

We intend to focus our efforts identifying businesses in technology, direct to consumer and FinTech industries.

(Note: This new blank-check company is unusual in that its board chair, its CEO and its CFO are all women – at a time when most SPACs or blank-check companies are still run by men. This special-purpose acquisition company (SPAC), incorporated in Delaware, is named after the Greek Goddess of War, the daughter of Zeus. She sprang from his head, fully clothed and in armor, according to Greek mythology.)

Our management team is led by Isabelle Freidheim, the chairman of our Board of Directors; Phyllis Newhouse, our Chief Executive Officer and Director, and Grace Vandecruze, our Chief Financial Officer. Ms. Freidheim and Ms. Newhouse have long-standing careers focused on identifying, evaluating and effecting strategic and financing transactions across a range of industries. Our team is designed to leverage technology, private and public market expertise to identify and execute a successful transaction.

Isabelle Freidheim is the co-founder of Magnifi, an AI and machine learning FinTech company that was acquired by The Tifin Group. She is also a co-founder and managing partner of Starwood VC, a venture investment firm. 

Phyllis W. Newhouse, our CEO, is an entrepreneur, a retired military senior non-commissioned officer, a mentor and the founder and CEO of XtremeSolutions, Inc., an Atlanta-based cybersecurity firm (“XSI”). She is also a founder of ShoulderUp, a nonprofit organization dedicated to connecting and supporting women on their entrepreneurial journeys.

Grace Vandecruze,  our CFO, is the founder and managing director at Grace Global Capital LLC, a consulting firm providing M&A financial advisory, restructuring, and valuation to insurance executives, boards and financial regulators since 2006. 

(Note: Athena Technology Acquisition Corp. priced its SPAC IPO on March 16, 2021, in line with the terms in its prospectus: 25 million units at $10 each to raise $250 million.)
