 Miral Kotb Biography

In 2009, entrepreneur, dancer, choreographer, and software engineer Miral Kotb combined her passion for dance and computers to create iLuminate, an entertainment technology company that combines state-of-the-art technology with exhilarating dancers who perform in the dark to create the ultimate audience experience.

Kotb received her degree in Computer Science from Columbia University while honing in on her dance skills in New York City. Upon graduating she secured a position with Bloomberg L.P. as a senior software engineer, then entered the world of mobile application development. Her work as a dancer and choreographer has been presented at numerous venues worldwide.

The concept for iLuminate emerged while she was developing iPhone applications. She had a vision of dancers wearing costumes that illuminated wirelessly to compliment the music and choreography — wireless technology that could be controlled from the palm of one’s hand. She pursued her idea with help from some of the best hardware and software engineers in the business. Developing iLuminate was the perfect way for Kotb to combine her uniquely different worlds and follow her true passion.

iLuminate took audiences by storm in 2011 when America voted the dance-in-the-dark sensation to be one of the top finalist positions on the hit television show, "America’s Got Talent." Since then, Kotb and her unprecedented technology, programming, choreographing, and overall artistic direction has catapulted iLuminate into an international phenomenon that mesmerizes audiences across the globe.

Kotb has programmed iLuminate’s patent-pending technology for such Grammy-winning superstars as Chris Brown, Christina Aguilera, The Black Eyed Peas and Death Cab for Cutie. The technology has also been featured on shows including Dancing With The Stars, The American Music Awards, Mira Quien Baila, The X Factor, MTV’s Video Music Awards, Nickelodeon’s HALO Awards, and the BET Awards. In addition, Miral has directed summer shows for several Six Flags Parks across America, a show featured at Disneyland’s ElecTRONica Festival, and has 2 shows being performed at sea on the luxury cruise line, Crystal Cruises. She has directed and produced a full-length show, "Artist of Light," that lived in the heart of Broadway for 3 years and has since been touring in Malaysia, Hong Kong, around the states, and will premiere in Europe. iLuminate also performs for many corporate events around the world with clients including Nike, IBM, Energizer, Starwood Hotels, Intel, MINI Cooper, Lenovo, Capital One, Lexus, among many others. iLuminate has been featured in commercials for College Basketball’s March Madness and Hasboro’s new Twister game. Recently Kotb and iLuminate had the honor of ringing the opening bell at NASDAQ.

In just a few short years, the rising entrepreneur has become a highly sought after speaker and advocate for women in computer science. At the personal request of Google founder Larry Page, Kotb spoke (alongside Sr. Richard Branson and other renowned speakers) at Google Zeitgeist. She also spoke at the Grace Hopper Conference, a conference focused on women in computing and appeared along with Mindy Kaling and Iconic Pop at Google’s launch event for Made With Code, an initiative aimed at empowering young women with computing skills. She was also a keynote speaker at Apple’s World Wide Developer’s Conference. As a two-time Cancer survivor, she has spoken at foundation galas, including Friends of Egyptian Children with Cancer. She also partnered up with Code.org to create an educational video that is played for students in Elementary schools around the world and she mentors young women in coding. Other notable presentations are: On Cue, TedX Broadway, and TedX Teen Center for Global Brand Leadership.
