|About||Combining resources in the Truckee Meadows to offer long-term mentorship and support to aspiring entrepreneurs, startups and business owners.|
|Mission||We empower entrepreneurs to create and grow their businesses.|
We believe that entrepreneurial small businesses are the future of Nevada’s economy. The Entrepreneurs Assembly Inc. was founded by Matt Westfield and Rod Hosilyk in August 2010 as a non-profit 501 C 3 to help get Nevada back on its feet by promoting job growth through entrepreneurial ventures. Over these past years, the EA has educated and trained over 300 potential entrepreneurs, several who have continued on to create small businesses. In mid-2013 the founders made the decision to extend their vision and grow the EA into a more structured organization and include others in the management of that organization. During this time John Moran was named Executive Director and a Board of Directors was chosen. The educational processes of the founders have been expanded and each founder is now teaching in the Entrepreneurial program at UNR as well as the Jump Start program. They also continue to be active in the monthly EASI sessions, along with many notable entrepreneurs, mentors, and university professors from around Truckee Meadows.
In 2015, EA began to expand. As of January, 2016, there are 4 additional EA chapters in Carson City, Incline Village, South Lake Tahoe and Henderson. Karol Hines has taken the role of Executive Director and John Moran is now the Chair of the EA Board of Directors.
