Dessy Levinson
Vice President & Head of Story, 645 Ventures

Dessy is a storyteller and investor who believes that immersive realities are inevitable. She became passionate about VR in middle school, gave up when it failed to become tangible, then took up the obsession again after trying her first headset four years ago. After more than 15 years as a Creative Director in entertainment and commerce (including work for Colgate, Gerber, A&E, Mall of America, and Fox), she is now the Vice President & Head of Story at 645 Ventures. She does her part to better distribute the future by championing VR startups like LittlStar and MergeVR and leading deals in VR/AR/MR, machine learning, and computer vision.
