In recent years, Karol Hines has worked with entrepreneurs locally and around the world.  An observation she has made is that, while there are societal, political and cultural factors that vary and influence how business is conducted, the passion, spirit, persistence and can-do attitude of entrepreneurs are persistent, common factors.  Karol will discuss entrepreneurship as an economic development engine, looking through the lenses of her local and international experiences. 

Since early 2017, Karol has been the Executive Director of Entrepreneurs Assembly, which supports entrepreneurs in Nevada with peer to peer mentoring, mentoring from experienced entrepreneurs, and a startup development program.  She has been significantly involved in other Northern Nevada supports for entrepreneurs, including the Nevada Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology, Entrepreneurship Nevada, the Cube at Midtown, and various startup competitions.   Traveling to Pakistan with the U.S. State Department, she visited with and gave presentations to Entrepreneurial organizations in Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore.  She made similar trips to Zimbabwe in 2016 and South Africa in 2017.  For the past 4 years, she has worked closely with the Young African Leaders who have come to Reno through the Mandela Washington Fellows program for the past 4 years. 

Karol’s professional career spans more than thirty years in New York and Silicon Valley, included executive management and technical leadership positions in several software and data analysis startup companies. In addition to consulting on her own, Karol has been CIO for United Behavioral Healthcare, a division of United Healthcare.  She was an executive project manager both for IBM and for BASE Consulting.

Karol is known for soaring!  In addition to managing many local, regional and national competitions and serving on the Boards of the Soaring Society of America and the Pacific Soaring Council, Karol competed, as a nationally ranked competition glider pilot, in many local, regional, national and international soaring competitions.
