Head of getting moonshots ready for contact with the real world
Head of getting moonshots ready for contact with the real world, X, the moonshot factory
Obi leads early stage projects at X, Alphabet’s moonshot factory. X is a team of inventors and entrepreneurs working on projects like self-driving cars (Waymo), drone delivery (Wing), and internet from balloons (Loon). Obi is responsible for getting early stage X projects from the lab into the real world, or ensuring they fail fast. Previously she was Director of Consumer Marketing for Google in Europe, Middle East and Africa, which sounds like the easiest job in the world until you consider that Google has 100+ products in a region of 120+ countries as diverse as Germany, Russia, Egypt, and Kenya. Before Google, Obi launched the ecommerce business of a major UK retailer, worked as a strategy consultant, and led eToys.com's (unsuccessful) expansion to Germany during the first dotcom era.
Obi is a startup mentor and angel investor, with a focus on women entrepreneurs. She set up Campus London, a Google-funded space for tech entrepreneurs. She is on the board of Shift, a charity designing products to address social problems like youth mental health. She is also on the board of Picasso Labs, a tech startup offering real-time image analytics based on machine learning algorithms.
Obi grew up in Berlin and saw the wall come down. She has a BA in Philosophy and Psychology from Oxford University. She lives in San Francisco with her husband (a beekeeper/triathlete), son (an inventor/clown) and daughter (too early to tell, but high hopes that she'll be a rocket scientist/diva). She loves yoga, bicycling, travelling, contemporary art and design, cooking, eating, and her family.
