About Marcelo Lewin
Created: 2020 | Acquired: TBD | Acquired by: TBD
I discovered headless technologies, specifically, the Contentful Headless CMS and became a huge fan of headless, content architecting and content modeling. I created various content shows around that to attract developers and started consulting and built a small clientele of steady customers.

As a VR and AR evangelist and creator of 360 and VR since November of 2017, I'm a huge believer of immersive technology and its future in our lives. I wanted to have a place where I could learn how to create VR taught by industry professionals, so I decided to create HowToCreateVR.com in November of 2018. Since then, it has become THE place to watch tutorials on how to create Virtual (and Augmented) Reality taught by industry professionals. You can also listen to weekly interviews with industry insiders and creators, attend live VR events in AltspaceVR and watch free live webinars, all focused on immersive technologies. In September 2019, How To Create VR was acquired by Humaneyes Technologies.

Finally, I managed the acquisition of Filmmaking Webinars with Moviola and oversaw the integration of it into Moviola’s infrastructure.

Created: 1999 | Acquired: 2000 | Acquired by: Internet Appliance Network
During the "Dot Com" era, I created a website called MyInternetDesktop.com, which allowed users to manage their life on the Web. The site offered an API which allowed developers to create apps that ran inside My Internet Desktop. Grew the site to thousands of users, at which point, it was acquired by Internet Appliance Network. I then managed both the acquisition of the site and the post-acquisition integration of the site into IAN’s infrastructure.
