Lise (Lisa) Voldeng

Lisa (Lise) Voldeng: CEO, creator, futurist, and investor. Runs accelerator Ultra-Agent Industries Inc. Loves icecream and integrity.

Voldeng consistently successfully forecasts global developments (across every sector of civilization), and consistently successfully develops solutions (across every sector of civilization) to help us prosper. She builds brands, markets, organizations, platforms, products, and experiences. And she invests in, advises, and mentors individuals and organizations who want to prosper integrously.

Her expertise spans every sector of culture: from advertising to aerospace and defense to business entertainment and media to education to energy and resources, environment and ecosystem to finance and economy to governance to law to science and technology. Voldeng has successfully forecasted (and built solutions for) 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 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 emerging technologies including ethical weapons and AI. Her work spans multiple media and media formats, from publishing to music to film and TV to games to events to emerging media. She’s written and produced trend reports, books, music albums and an array of multimedia multitechnology products, events, and experiences. Voldeng has created numerous brands spanning every aspect of culture, from entertainment and media to lifestyle to aerospace and defense to governance to technology. Key brands include überbabe® (first trademarked in 1997, and consisting of hundreds of “child brands”) Some of überbabe’s “child brands” include ultrafuture, doveland, tiny engines, primal fang, suprawar, riders united, outlaws of chivalry, and herobroke.

Voldeng was CEO and founder of entertainment technology company Sugarlab Corp., and entertainment technology forecasting, analysis, and research lab UMI/Digital Mogul. She started her first company when she was just shy of her teens. She was also senior industry analyst with Upside, and a director/senior developer with several Fortune 1000 advanced media and 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 9 (a haunted forest that neighborhood kids paid 25 cents each to… immersively experience).

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 selectively provides expert advisory and analysis to international media outlets including The Wall Street Journal, C/NET, and The Hollywood Reporter.
