Lise (Lisa) Voldeng

Lisa (Lise) Voldeng is a CEO, inventor, futurist, and investor. Her expertise spans advertising, aerospace and defense, business, culture and lifestyle, entertainment and media, education, energy and resources, environment and ecosystem, finance and economy, governance, law, science and technology, and transportation.

Voldeng is founder and CEO/CCO of acceleration lab Ultra-Agent Industries Inc. Voldeng was CEO and founder of multiplatform entertainment company Sugarlab Corp., and entertainment and technology forecasting and analysis company Digital Mogul. She was also senior industry analyst with Upside, and a director/senior developer with several Fortune 1000 advanced technology companies. Voldeng cut her teeth in advanced telecommunications in the early 1990s, beginning her career in development with a company acquired by HP’s Test and Measurement division. She built her first technology when she was 11 (a surround sound speaker system for her bedroom), wrote her first screenplay when she was also 11 (an unabashedly cheesy Star Wars holiday special), and designed and deployed her first immersive experience at 10 (a haunted forest that neighborhood kids paid 25 cents each to… immersively experience).

Voldeng invests and has invested in, advised, developed and mentored a host of markets, companies, platforms, products, services, experiences and technologies. And she has successfully forecasted the evolution of a host of markets and market developments – including the evolution of advanced communications including the rise of the Internet, mobile and non-terrestrial communications technologies ; the evolution of science and applied sciences; the evolution of AI; the evolution of entertainment, media, and culture; the evolution of participatory communities including live and social media, platforms and networks; the evolution of energy, resources, and the environment; the evolution of finance and economy; the evolution of governance; and the evolution of advanced technologies.

Voldeng was named one of the Top 10 “21st Century Media Thinkers” by Nikkei Electronics, one of the “Top 25 Women in Technology” by ZDnet/SFWOW and one of the “Women to Know in New Media” by the Online Journalism Review. She’s been profiled in publications from The Industry Standard and USA Today to The Globe and Mail and The National Post, and provides expert analysis to international media outlets including The Wall Street Journal, C/NET, and The Hollywood Reporter.

Voldeng is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), Association of Professional Futurists, a member of the Silicon Valley Space Club, a founding and judging member of the World Technology Network, a startup mentor with Viatec, and co-producer and moderator for The Future Now Show.
