Head of LA Founders Space Round Table
Hope is President and Co-Founder of Telefon Projekt whose technology allows content creators to produce experiences in which conversations – actual spoken dialog or text exchanges – between real people and virtual or fictional characters impact the flow of a narrative. The conversations can be integrated with any media that can delivered over the internet – video, animation, social media, etc – allowing what a person says to control what’s seen on screen.
Prior to founding Telefon Projekt Hope was Senior Manager of Strategic Partnerships at Ask Jeeves, where she managed relationships between the search provider and strategic content partners, coordinated expansion and renewal of services, and guaranteed that key performance metrics were achieved. Hope also worked as a producer for the Discovery Channel, developing sponsors and managing production for several television series.
