NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--World of Business Ideas (WOBI), the leader in management and leadership conferences, is pleased to announce Steven Kydd, co-founder of Tastemade, as the latest addition to the 12th annual World Business Forum NYC speaker roster. This year’s conference is comprised of a selection of icons and experts who make up a group of “Story Makers” – protagonists who are building the future rather than recounting the past; those who are making their own stories; and individuals who have achieved the extraordinary. Kydd joins a stellar lineup of Story Makers, including: Kevin Spacey, Sir Richard Branson, Jim Collins, Walter Isaacson, Carolyn Everson, among others.
A food and travel community for the mobile generation, Tastemade was co-founded by Kydd in 2012 and offers a platform for “tastemakers” to create and share content, distributing on every screen from smartphones to connected TVs for a global audience that now reaches over 30 million people monthly. Tastemade was originally launched as a digital food network, featuring chefs and other cooking talent native to the Web. The company has since enjoyed exponential expansion to become a leading digital video network across Facebook, AppleTV, YouTube and other digital & mobile platforms, enabling a community of more than 1,000 Tastemakers and over 80 million social followers to come together to discover and share their passion for great food and travel. In 2015, Tastemade was named as one of the World's Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Food by Fast Company magazine.
"I'm thrilled to be sharing the story of Tastemade at the World Business Forum in NYC this year,” said Kydd. “WOBI is a unique opportunity to reach top executives from around the globe and explore important issues of the day in media, technology and culture."
