April 9th: Virtual Reality: The Path to the Future



We are pleased to welcome Michelle Rebaleati to present at Mountain Minds Monday: “Virtual Reality: The Path to the Future”

Though perhaps most well-known for its applications in the entertainment industry, virtual reality has the potential for much deeper and life-changing impacts.

Michelle Rebaleati, Multimedia Production Specialist at the University of Nevada, Reno, will explain how through using virtual reality, people can share new perspectives and access experiences they might not have otherwise engaged in.

Come learn how this can help create a culture of innovation and empathy and perhaps you’ll be one of a lucky few who can try out the virtual reality headsets for yourself.

Mountain Minds Monday will be held on Monday, April 9th from 6-8 pm at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner located at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee. Pizza and salad is available and we use a pay-what-you-can model ($5 minimum). Before and after the presentation, there will be time for networking.

The event will also be livestreamed and available online as it happens on YouTube: bit.ly/YouTubeTSM

This month’s event is sponsored by New Leaders, Holland & Hart LLP, The Lift, Molsby & Bordner, LLP, and Mountain Workspace.

March 12th: Running A Global Nonprofit from a Mountain Town




Tahoe Silicon Mountain, a network of entrepreneurs and professionals who live and work in the Tahoe-Truckee area, is pleased to welcome Maria Tran to present at Mountain Minds Monday: “Running A Global Nonprofit from a Mountain Town”

Haunted by the photo of the body of a 3-year-old refugee washed up on a beach in Greece, Truckee’s Maria Tran decided to do something about it.

First as a volunteer, and next as co-founder of Sea of Solidarity, a nonprofit that supports grassroots humanitarian and educational projects in Greece and Turkey, Tran has taken advantage of technology to save lives, organize relief efforts, raise awareness, and to galvanize people from around the world (including Truckee) to volunteer.

Come hear Tran’s story of running a highly responsive global nonprofit from Truckee, including how she began as a product manager in Silicon Valley and transitioned to Truckee, how she’s been able to involve local students who will be traveling to Greece and how forming partnerships with local entrepreneurs can strengthen Sea of Solidarity’s efforts.

Mountain Minds Monday will be held on Monday, March 12th from 6-8 pm at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner located at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee. Pizza and salad is available and we use a pay-what-you-can model ($5 minimum). Before and after the presentation, there will be time for networking.
