Shriram is a scientist, film producer, and wildlife photographer interested in the impact of immersive worlds on human behavior. She is currently the chief technology officer at Krikey, an AR gaming tools service she co-founded with her sister. Krikey recently closed its Series A round, led by Reliance Jio, India's biggest telecom operator. Shriram received her BA, MA, and PhD at the Stanford Virtual Human Interaction Lab. She previously worked at Google [x] and at Meta Platforms’ Reality Labs. Shriram was selected for the Forbes 30 Under 30 2020 Class in the Gaming category. You can learn more here: krikey.ai.

Nusrat was named to the “Forbes Next 1000 List,” which honors startups and businesses with less than $10 million in sales but limitless potential to inspire. She’s also building Breshna.io, a platform that empowers users to create, share and monetize their own purposeful Web3 video games, with no code and at lightning speed. Think Tik-Tok for video games.
