Catherine Allen

Founder & Ceo
Limina Immersive

Catherine co-founded Limina in 2016. Before that, she led the creation of two of the BBC’s first VR experiences. Her work is known for bringing immersive technology to the broader public who wouldn’t describe themselves as early adopters. In 2018 her leadership in shaping the VR sector was recognised through a prestigious Marie Claire Future Shapers award. Other awards include a BAFTA in 2014 for her work on the Disney Animated app and a Lovie in 2017 for the BBC VR documentary Easter Rising: Voice of a Rebel, which Broadcast magazine described as ‘genre-defining’. As one of the UK’s leading voices in immersive media, Catherine has been an industry expert for the BBC Today programme, The Guardian, The Economist, Wired Magazine, TechCrunch and BBC Click.
