Dear Friends and Collegues,


ABN is excited to feature Mrs. Jacqueline Karaaslanian, Executive Director of Luys Foundation as Guest Speaker at our upcoming ABN Spring Networking Event.


Please join us on March 31, at the Sheraton Commander Hotel in Cambridge, MA at 7pm as Mrs. Karaaslanian shares her story of 30-year journey from the technology hub at MIT Media Labs in Cambridge, MA to heading the educational mission of Luys Foundation in Armenia. Mrs. Karaaslanian presentation will offer great insight for young Armenian adults and their parents on the Luys programs, as well as an insider's look at many exciting developments in Armenia where ABN members can collaborate and create value. 

Mrs. Karaaslanian worked with the founding members of MIT Media Labs from its inception for 25 years, serving as the Director of Special Projects for the Future of Learning and Media Fabrics Groups in her last role. She moved to Armenia in 2009 to focus on the educational mission of Luys Foundation - an organization dedicated to financially supporting and nurturing relationships with Armenian scholars (under 40) studying at top universities from around the world. In return, Luys scholars apply their acquired skills and knowledge to tangible economic and cultural change in Armenia. For more information about Luys Foundation, please visit


"Armenia Rewards the Bold - It is a fascinating country that keeps surprising people, and offering each a unique experience to understand oneself and the world. Our challenge as Armenians is to leverage the potential Armenia has with today’s major innovative changes. We now have the tools to shape the way we learn, think and work together as a 10-million-strong network." Jacqueline Karaaslanian
