Luciana Makes The BIMA 100
Every year, BIMA celebrates the very best of people in the digital industries, with the final 100 comprising people from across the digital spectrum. We’re delighted to say that Luciana Carvalho Se has been named one of the BIMA 100, in the Rising Stars category!
Luciana joined REWIND in August 2017 to head up new business & partnerships. Previously a freelancer with a combined 5+ years’ experience in award-winning startups, her focus since 2016 has been leveraging her law, business and entrepreneurial background to support and grow the UK’s immersive tech industry. To that end, she recently helped co-found, and is a Director and Evangelist at the Realities Centre London (incubator and academy for B2B VR/AR/MR innovation), co-chairs the Tech London Advocates AR/VR committee, and carries ongoing research on ‘VR for good’ applications, namely within neuroscience and cognitive behavioural change.
Luciana is also co-founder of Unfold Inclusion, a social enterprise powering women/diversity in XR in the UK. Passionate about empowering women in tech, Luciana is also a STEM and Founders4Schools ambassador, as well as a mentor and spokesperson for Code First Girls, SheWorx and Women of Wearables. She has consulted for the likes of The World Bank, Panasonic R&D, Bloomberg, Lloyds, Intel, KPMG, Facebook and Barclays, and regularly speaks about her journey and current work at schools, conferences and companies worldwide. She has also hosted and continues to host webinars on neuroVR and women in tech with BrightTALK and BeMyApp.
Sol Rogers, REWIND’s Founder and CEO, was previously selected for the BIMA 100, in the CEO category. We’re thrilled that Luciana is the second member of the team to receive the accolade. Go Lu!
