Who we are
We’re a tight-knit team of people crazy about AR and its power to transform the world.
Learning is at the core of everything we do and we are passionate about educating people about AR. We also have a lot of fun trying the latest immersive technologies and we want to share that fun with everyone.
We are strong believers in diversity: it is not only core to our team, but also a core strength of our entire ecosystem: developers, partners and platforms.

Lilit brings in the cash thanks to her superb ability to communicate Poplar’s grand vision of AR. When she’s not signing big deals she’s playing guitar in her fabulous rock covers band or showing off her wine and pasta matching skills.
