Emily Lutzker, PhD, OpenInvo Founder and CEO, brings people and companies together to create unexpected and relevant results. At a time when creativity and out-of-the-box thinking are fast becoming workplace necessities, Emily’s varied background has prepared her to wonder and inquire, “What box?”
A former artist who has shown her work internationally, Emily holds a PhD in Media and Communications from the European Graduate School (EGS). She is a grant recipient of the Jerome Foundation/St. John’s Pottery, and the Israeli Ministry of the Interior. Emily has taught for the New School’s Graduate Media Studies Program and its Undergraduate Department of Communication; the Center for Interactive Communication at Beit Berl College/Ha Midrasha School of Art; has been a guest instructor at Bezalel Design Academy; and has participated in numerous doctoral dissertation defense committees for the EGS. She is the former coordinator and moderator of Beit Berl’s New Media Colloquium, a speaker series bridging the curriculum of the New Media, Information Studies, and Games Development Programs. Emily has been a guest speaker at Florida Atlantic University, Tel Aviv University, Ignite NYC, the International Schopenhauer Association, and Tel Aviv’s Performance Art Platform and Center for Contemporary Art.
Outside of academia and fine art, Emily has noodled around as a graphic designer, film producer, stylist, curator, critic, and location scout. She now applies her creativity to the business world with OpenInvo and the OpenInvo Studio program and its various clients.
