Lise (Lisa) Voldeng

Founder, Chairman and President

Lise (Lisa) Voldeng

UAI founder and President Lise Voldeng loves to build. And she loves to help folks build. Joyously.

Voldeng’s expertise spans expertise spans advertising to aerospace and defense to business to entertainment and media to education to energy to environment and ecosystem to finance and economy to government 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 forecasts, analyses, reports, columns, books, music albums and an array of multiplatform multitechnology products, events, and experiences. Voldeng has created numerous brands spanning every aspect of civilization, from entertainment and media to lifestyle to aerospace and defense to governance to technology. Voldeng’s brands include überbabe® (first trademarked in 1996), ultrafuture, doveland, tiny engines, primal fang, suprawar, riders united, outlaws of chivalry, digital mogul and mogulwars.

Voldeng was CEO and founder of entertainment technology company Sugarlab Corp., and entertainment technology forecasting, analysis, and research lab UMI. 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 sweet Star Wars holiday special), and designed and deployed her first immersive experience at 9 (a haunted forest that neighborhood kids paid 25 cents to explore).

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 media outlets from Fox Business News and Wealth TV to The Industry Standard and USA Today to The Globe and Mail and The National Post. She has selectively provided expert advisory and analysis to international media outlets including The Wall Street Journal, C/NET, and The Hollywood Reporter, and to governments such as the European Union.

Voldeng is a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) and the Silicon Valley Space Club, and a founding member and judge of the World Technology Network. She helped brand and launch the Future Now Show, and was an invited judge for the SXSW Business Accelerator, an advisor on NASA’s 23 year strategic plans, and an advisor to Canadian MP Dr. Hedy Fry. Voldeng has also worked as a board member and co-chair for various organizations focused on inclusivity. She loves ice cream. And integrity. And surfing.

– überbabe immersive experience user, Phase 1

“As most venture capitalists do, every year I preview dozens of newsletters and talk to dozens of analysts, all in hopes of uncovering original and useful thinkers that might give me an edge in a very competitive business. Your stuff focuses on what most others miss, and more importantly, you tell the story thoughtfully, relevantly and irreverently. Most don't make the cut. You do.”

-William C. Hulley, former General Partner, Adams Capital Management

“Anyone concerned with getting down to the business of being creative in the ever evolving digital landscape should treat themselves to a helping of [Voldeng's] provocative commentary.”

-Jordan Kurzweil, former Vice President of Content Development, News America Digital/Fox

“I thought it might be helpful to let you know of how I have come to greatly value your publication. Succinctly, it informs where others do the opposite, it entertains because it's attitude is about asking tough questions that we all want to know the answers to, and it is wholly unaffected (which in the web world is a rarity, indeed) and unbiased in its approach.
As a practicing participant in the mono-media field of children's and young family TV programming, "überbabe" is a great weapon to have when considering what our options are in the rapidly changing world of entertainment. Particularly, if it will help in getting us beyond the horizons of traditional or conventional entertainment delivery mediums and creating exciting ways in telling great stories...”

-Robert Ross, CEO, Ross Saunders Entertainment Group

“[Lise Voldeng] cuts through a sea of hype and helps media and entertainment leaders get valuable information, special insight and thoughtful commentary on issues like convergence, technology and content. [Voldeng is] required reading to stay ahead of the market and to understand how to manage within our swiftly moving industries.”

-Andrew H. Orgel, former President and COO, Wisdom Networks and Co-Founder, MTV and A&E
