Dodiodo, Inc. is the development and holding company for Dodie Jacobi’s intellectual properties created around her personal interests and four-decade career in innovation and entrepreneurship. Dodie organized Dodiodo to collaborate with experts assembled to take each property through market validation, product development, and market readiness. Dodiodo then seeks market-dominant brands to acquire and scale each property for the greatest impact and profit.
Properties in development focus on intriguing convergences around the newest technologies, market changes, and societal influences:
transmedia properties and how they can create greater impact with diversified distribution
repurposing legacy properties in new media, multi-media, or omni-media
assuring upsides while tempering downsides of continued AI innovation
the journalism/entertainment mashup and balancing the best of each
education as latent growth opportunity for converging with media and entertainment
reconciling past socio-economic transgressions with future reparations - literally and philosophically
conscious capitalism as a good use of wealth to further peace, equality, and enough for every being on a thriving planet
