Eddie Avil

Eddie Avil is the CEO of VR Storytellers, the Founder and Director at Immerge Knowledge Labs and Immersion Film Festival, and Founder of XROM Digital News Magazine and Change Transform India.

In 2020, Eddie founded Change Transform India, a new platform and a community for disrupters, innovators, entrepreneurs, policy change-makers, and impact investors working on building for tomorrow. He also began the podcast CHANGE I M Possible.

With this podcast, he engaged in conversations on the future of humanity with leaders from India and around the globe, discussing disruptive technologies including Artificial Intelligence, IoT, Blockchain, Extended Reality, Synthetic Biology, Robotics, Autonomous Vehicles, Drones, 3D Printing, and Quantum Computing.

The exponential growth of technologies will redefine mankind. Age Reversal, Transhumanism, Exoskeleton, Brain-Computer Interface, and Colonizing Mars do not sound Sci-Fi anymore. The word IMPOSSIBLE stands to be Re-Interpreted as I M POSSIBLE.

In 2014, they received the Excellence in Production Award at Mirchi Kaan Awards 2014.

His goal at XROM is to gather investors, entrepreneurs, technologists, policy-makers, and consumers to collectively shape AR, VR, and the MR Industry.
