VRARA SF Advisor Shel Israel Offers Ghostwriting to the VR/AR Community


Acomplished author and VRARA SF Chapter Advisor Shel Israel can help craft your VR/AR Narratives

The VR/AR Association tagline is Growth | Knowledge | Connections. And we strive in the San Francisco chapter to embody those principles in all moves. Pursuant to that charter, we announced in April that author, startup advisor and thought leader Shel Israel joined the chapter as advisor.

Now we’re doubling down on that. Israel is offering his services to VRARA members and the broader VR/AR community to ghostwrite a tech-business book or to advise startups on developing narratives. This includes a free hour of consulting for VRARA SF and Silicon Valley members.

Having written seven books on tech transformation, Israel brings historical perspective of past tech disruptions, and business realities that defined them. Specifically for AR and VR, you could say that Israel “wrote the book” on their expected impact. The Fourth Transformation stands out on the bookshelves of our chapter principles, and remains a signpost for the early stages in a long evolution of AR and VR.

“As someone who’s defined tech transformation both with his thought leadership and his hands-on work advising startups, Shel has been a hugely influential figure to all of us in the SF tech community,” said San Francisco Chapter co-president Emily Olman.

Israel just shared with us that he has completed two big projects and is available as a content marketing resource to VRARA members and beyond. Get him now, while available. You can read more about him on his website or email him.
