Medium Recognizes Joan Jetsetter as a Female Founder in Emerging Tech


Females and other underrepresented groups recognized for their work in immersive technology

VR and AR expert Eva Hoerth wants to see a more inclusive landscape for professionals in emerging technologies. As part of an ongoing project, she extensively researches founders and leaders of companies who identify as women. She also digs deep to find companies that are led by People of Color, members of the LGBTQIA community and any other historically underrepresented group in technology.

Times, they are a changin' ... at least that's what we hope. As many of you know, my VR producing partner Wasim Muklashy and I started a 360-degree travel video production company called superswell VR. We've worked on projects for tourism and technology brands from Samsung and Costco Travel to Tahiti Tourisme and Visit Denmark. It's an honor for us to have made Medium's list of Female Founders in Emerging Tech—thanks to Eva's efforts. You can read the complete list here, which includes rock stars in VR/AR such as the Godmother of VR Nonny de la Peña and Maureen Fan of Baobab Studios. Thanks for the s/o, Medium, and keep kicking ass out there, friends!
