Hawaiʻi's Technology Community

Featured Techie: Wayne Karo, Pipeline Micro CEO

I can't say enough good things about Wayne and his world class team at Pipeline Micro. Simply put, they are some of the sharpest and most motivated people we've met. Pipeline is working on an amazingly small and quiet liquid cooling system with the potential to improve the efficiency of everything from microprocessors to lighting systems. We have had the pleasure of seeing the product evolve since its inception and enjoyed hearing about the creative ways in which Pipeline's team overcomes design challenges. Wayne's sharp intellect and well known integrity make him a highly valued adviser and friend. It is with great pleasure we announce our corporate neighbor, Wayne Karo, as December's Featured Techie. Keep making it smaller, faster and cooler!

Wayne Karo, Chief Executive Officer of Pipeline Micro, is a specialist in innovation and technology management, and a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Management and Stanford University. Karo holds an MBA concentrating in new product and venture development from MIT and an MS in electrical engineering from Stanford. He has U.S. and international project management experience developing complex electronic instrumentation for the global semiconductor equipment market. Karo is fluent in Japanese.
