In the dynamic realm of technology and education, individuals with a passion for innovation and a commitment to making a meaningful impact stand out. Diana Bermúdez, Elev8’s Global Head of Product and Innovation, embodies these qualities, bringing a wealth of experience and a unique perspective to her role.
Embarking on a New Chapter
Diana began her Elev8 career in March 2022, transitioning from her role at a Digital Business School in Madrid, Spain. She embraced the challenge of leading our global strategic programs and innovation. Now Diana orchestrates the implementation of Elev8’s product strategy, from conception to commercialization, driving innovation for both value creation and business growth.
A Blend of Academia and Empathy
Beyond her professional endeavors, Diana holds a Ph.D. in Social Anthropology, a facet of her background that uniquely shapes her approach. This academic foundation has instilled in her a deep sense of empathy, a core component of Elev8’s ‘We Care’ culture. This empathetic understanding allows her to personally connect with colleagues and customers, acknowledging diverse perspectives, feelings, thoughts, and needs.
Her Passion for Education and Technology
Driven by an unwavering passion for education and technology, Diana sees the combination of these two elements as a catalyst for breaking barriers and transcending geographical boundaries.

The richness of diversity becomes particularly relevant when tackling challenging projects. Engaging with colleagues from various backgrounds has significantly broadened her understanding of different markets and enriched her perspectives on the tech business.
Life Beyond Work
Outside of the office, Diana emphasizes the importance of family. As the proud mother of two teenagers, Martina and Matias (her beloved M&M’s), she values the time spent with them, creating endless adventures and laughter. Her spare time is dedicated to practicing Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga, golf, and traveling with her children. To Diana, experiencing the world firsthand is the best way to teach her kids about economics, languages, cultures, and customs.
