Laura Lorek, San Antonio Chapter Director

I'm the founder of Silicon Hills News, an online technology news site covering entrepreneurs and companies in the Austin and San Antonio region. Founded in 2011, SHN won a New Media Women Entrepreneur grant to provide seed stage funding to launch the site, which now has a staff of five reporters. Previously, I worked as a senior writer covering technology and business news at the San Antonio Express-News, a senior writer for Interactive Week Magazine and a specialty writer and technology columnist at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. I'm interested in startups, entrepreneurship, technology and storytelling.  I live in Wimberley, in the Texas Hill Country, with my husband, Charlie, teenage son, Teddy, and two Labradors, Apollo and Zeus.
