With the goal of creating groundbreaking new business, Ilgi has experience in spearheading growth strategies centred on new technologies for global companies across multiple different industries.
Ilgi is an accomplished business executive and innovator, and dived into the web3 pool as a venture builder. She has since achieved recognition as one of the Top 100 Women shaping the future of the Metaverse and Web3 in the global arena.
Before diving into the web3 world, Ilgi headed up the innovation lab for Pernod Ricard, The Absolut Company, and has mentored over 20 startups (including Outlier Ventures, Antler, and Tech Nordic Advocates). This has earned her being named one of the top 50 women business leaders in Sweden.
With this exceptional skill set, Ilgi will drive Journee’s strategy and expand our global presence.
Growth and Vision
"It is fantastic to join a driven team of awarded technologists, creatives, and strategists who are geared to propel some of the biggest enterprises in the world. In my role, I will be working with a group of strategists who are rethinking the future of communication, social interactions, the way we will work, play, learn, and who are driven to help the pioneers in the enterprise world with the immersive tools they need to introduce a new era in their respective fields.
As we navigate the ever-changing landscape of digital innovation and immersive computing, success will lie in truly understanding the needs of our customers (sometimes better than them!) and in helping them push the boundaries of their industries. I’m excited to work with our customers and help devise Journee's game plan to accelerate our growth.”
Ilgi Evecan Duran, Head of Global Strategy
