Former Yahoo chief executive officer Marissa Mayer returns with technology business incubator, Lumi Labs, with colleague Enrique Munoz Torres.

In an interview to the New York Times, Mayer stated that the Lumi Labs, based out of California, will focus on consumer media and artificial intelligence.

She revealed how in Finnish, lumi means snow and how she loves snow and even had a snowflake-themed wedding. Lately, she has been meeting with different founders to understand what’s happening in the industry.

Marissa Mayer resigned from Yahoo after the Oath takeover. She further told NYT about how she worked at Google for 13 years and had been on search team for 10 of those years.

She said: “I had very recently made the change over to focus on Maps as a search technology. And I was like, “You know, I’m just not sure that I want to be like the 50-year-old search girl.”
