Lisa Rutherford presents COLILOQUY

StoryCode is thrilled to explore the frontiers of publishing with a Forum presentation from the co-founder and CEO of Coliloquy, Lisa Rutherford. Lisa will share with us the innovative thinking that went into creating Coliloquy, a company leveraging technology to enable new forms of reading and writing.

Coliloquy is a digital publisher of active fiction. Their proprietary platform lets authors create episodic content, branching narratives, and interactive environments that deepen reader engagement. The result is innovative new forms of digital fiction that move beyond traditional publishing.

Coliloquy was founded on the belief that digital fiction can push the boundaries of how we think about narrative and storytelling. It publishes books as active applications, rather than static files, allowing authors to build ever-expanding worlds through episodic, serial storytelling and engagement mechanics, like choice and voting, branching story lines, re-reading loops, and personalized content. The result is an incredibly fluid and immersive story-telling experience.

Prior to co-founding Coliloquy, Lisa founded Elodie Partners and served as the President of virtual economy pioneer, Twofish (acquired by Live Gamer), and as a venture capitalist with In-Q-Tel, Vista Ventures, and Palo Alto Venture Partners. She ran her own freelance writing and marketing agency and worked in M&A at Broadview. Outside of Coliloquy, Lisa serves as an advisor to BulletTime Ventures, Boulder Digital Works, and several startups, as well as a mentor for the TechStars program. She was named an AlwaysON Top 25 Women to Watch in Tech. Lisa has an MBA from Stanford University, an MA from the University of Chicago, and a BA from the Penn State University Scholars Program.
