Rachel Lynn Karry
Co-Founder & President
World Artists United
An emerging leader in music and creative media, Rachel Lynn Karry brings a new perspective of leadership to the business of music. Beginning her career as a social worker, Rachel’s heart is naturally drawn toward uplifting and empowering people and their communities. After running various nonprofits, she transitioned into entrepreneurship and began studying positive psychology, leadership and personal development. With a drive to empower people to pursue their passion and turn dreams into sustainable business, Rachel became a serial entrepreneur; developing businesses from beauty products to drone technology. While pursuing a Master’s Degree in Leadership Studies, she also reconnected with her passion for music and life took an exciting turn.
As Co-Founder and President of World Artists United, Rachel is a creative brand and business development strategist, content producer and team leader, with a unique gift to find, grow and leverage collaborative, strategic networks and opportunities. Mentored by renowned business leaders and executive coaches, Rachel has a passion for personal development, leadership development and understands the fundamentals of transforming one’s dream into one’s reality. She and her team created the Music Entrepreneur Conference (ME.Con), which launched at Harvard University’s Science Center to help artists and entrepreneurs become ARTtrepreneurs. ME.Con provides a missing link in the education of music: focusing on community building and cultivating the mindset and attitude of a successful entrepreneur, while providing business strategy and brand building tools to connect with and monetize one’s community and fanbase. She also co-produced the Music Industry Essentials program with Yellowbic.learn for NYU’s Clive Davis Institute for Recorded Music.
In an evolving era of entrepreneurship, coupled with the transformative values of artists and rising leaders, Rachel’s current area of research is Positive Leadership in Music, developing an education program for executives in music.
