Cristina (Cris) Patwa Biography

As Co-CEO of FactoryMade Ventures, Cris Patwa leads FactoryMade as a boutique incubator that creates new ventures in media and entertainment.

She oversees the company’s partnerships with renowned global corporations and marquee Hollywood talent to cultivate concepts to execution.

Under her leadership, FactoryMade combines the creation of rich content with the strategic use of traditional and emerging distribution platforms to deliver compelling entertainment experiences to hundreds of millions of people around the world.

Her vision has led to numerous awards and recognition for FactoryMade’s partners and clients, with her work involving companies such as Hasbro, HSN, Telefonica, RTL Group, Intel, Procter & Gamble, Clorox and JC Penney as well as talent such as Robert Rodriguez, Thom Beers, Alicia Keys, Whoopi Goldberg, Michael Bay and JJ Abrams.
