About the speaker

This person is speaking at this event.
Linda L. Franco

Creator, Machina Wearable Technology

Linda Franco, entrepreneurial tech-fashionista, started out studying marketing and strategic design at Centro University in Mexico City. Shortly after, she co-founded The Gyzu Experiement, a web design and development firm, and alongside this she set up the Plan de Escape prison project which taught male inmates the ins and outs of fashion and trends with the end goal of creating their own fashion label.

As for her current projects at Machina Wearable Technology, Linda and her team are taking the industry to the next level with the idea of open source in wearable tech. She is on a cutting edge when it comes to creating interactive wearable tech design that can be worn by anyone, in consideration with its aesthetics and functionality.
