Karen joined Endeavor Global’s San Francisco office in April 2010 where she is now responsible for Entrepreneur Services and Partnerships. Karen is focused on building a network of mentors, industry experts, investors, and companies committed to supporting high-impact entrepreneurship in emerging markets in addition to linking Silicon Valley to Endeavor Entrepreneurs through events, in person meetings, and online resources. Karen first got involved with Endeavor in the fall of 2008 while working for a tech startup in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Impressed by Endeavor’s model, she supported Argentina’s Search & Selection team by conducting due diligence and collaborating with entrepreneurs on various growth strategy and market expansion projects.
