Carlos M Icaza

I have more than 20 years of engineering and management experience. I managed various teams at Adobe including Flash Lite, Flash Mobile Authoring, Flash Cast and Adobe Illustrator. I was also responsible for creating and developing Adobe’s entire mobile authoring strategy, now deployed across the entire Adobe Creative Suite.

Aside from managing experience, I have shipped industry-standard products such as Flash Lite (deployed in over a billion devices), Flash Authoring, Adobe Creative Suite, Adobe Mobile Device Central, Adobe Illustrator, SVG, Adobe Pagemill, Micrografx Windows Draw, and Deneba Canvas.

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 am also strategic advisor for several startups and Fortune 500 companies. And I do a lot of speaking engagements on entrepreneurship, mobile landscape/gaming/market and mobile strategies.

In June of 2012, I co-founded my new venture called Lanica, Inc. A new startup which has been launched and is funded by Appcelerator’s Innovator Fund. Lanica’s focus is on providing professional game developers the tools they need in order to create immersive, compelling and successful games.
