AMCN Vice President and Chair of the ICT committee. Sara Amiri is a Technologist and Entrepreneur with a passion for turning vision into reality. She believes that business should make the world a better place and address societal needs with a creative model.

As a Program Manager, Amiri recognizes the value of good ideas – and that even the best idea needs a skillful execution. She has managed successful projects such as the opening of the Automotive Center of Excellence in Oujda, Morocco – the first Snap-On Automotive Certification Center outside of the U.S..
Her will to get things done has led her to create a total of five tech startup companies, and serve as business advisor to several more. In the past, Sara was Algorithmic Futures Trader for Blackthorne Capital Management managing and Project Management Consultant for Gateway Technical College’s U.S.-Morocco business incubation program.
She obtained her Bachelor in both Finance & Business Law and Political Science, and her MBA with an emphasis in Finance and Information Technology from the University of Wisconsin, Whitewater. Her reputation as an effective leader and entrepreneur led to her being invited to be part of the Launchpad Business Incubator Program to help continue to build the different entrepreneurship programs in Wisconsin. She became one of the Business Incubator’s first graduates. When she’s not working to create a better future one project at a time, she’s enjoying playing sports or having great conversations while drinking entirely too much coffee!
