Carlos M Icaza

In December 2014, I founded Eastwood Advisors, a company dedicated to advising startups and Fortune 500 companies on innovation, branding, analytics, coding, management, serving as an iCTO, strategies for growth, and more.

In June of 2012, I co-founded and was CEO of Lanica, Inc., which was funded by Appcelerator’s Innovator Fund. Lanica’s focus was on providing professional game developers the tools they need in order to create immersive, compelling and successful games. Lanica’s flagship product, Platino, was sold to Black Gate Games in late 2014.

In 2007 I founded and was the CEO of Ansca Inc, which makes the Corona SDK and successfully closed a $1.5 million series A round.

I do a lot of speaking engagements on entrepreneurship, mobile landscape/gaming/market and strategies.

Aside from startup experience, I have more than 20 years of engineering and management experience, I have shipped leading and award winning, industry-standard applications such as Flash Lite (deployed in over two billion devices), Flash Authoring, Adobe Creative Suite, Adobe Mobile Device Central, Adobe Illustrator, SVG, Adobe Pagemill, Micrografx Windows Draw, and Deneba Canvas.

I also run @codinginswift, a twitter page dedicated to the Swift programming language, and Miami Entrepreneurs Startup Bootcamp, a meetup group all about entrepreneurship, and lastly, I run the South Florida Swift Programming Group, a meetup group on the Swift Programming Language to teach, learn and share all about Swift.
