Join Us April 23!

Weintraub Tobin and the LAVA Digital Media Group will host a panel discussion: "How Has Digital Media Changed the Way We Interact with Food" on Tuesday, April 23.

Whether it’s finding a place to eat, sharing recommendations on your favorite dishes or ordering food online, investors have been hungry (sorry for the terrible pun) to invest in web and mobile-based food applications and platforms – aka food tech.

Over the last year, almost $350 million has been invested in Food Tech and deal activity to the burgeoning sector grew over 37% vs the prior year.

Panelists include:

  • Bruce Seidel, Digital Media Strategist, and former CEO, Electus’ YouTube Food Channel.
  • Corianda Dimes, New Media Strategist, Bullfrog and Baum
  • Nik Bauman, cofounder of Foodzie.com and Tonx, Inc. Nik has focused his entire professional career on e-commerce and food
  • Moderated by Scott Hervey, Shareholder, Weintraub Tobin

"How Has Digital Media Changed the Way We Interact with Food" takes place Tuesday, April 23 at ROC, 604 Arizona Street in Santa Monica. Enjoy a social hour from 6:30-7 p.m. followed by the panel discussion and a Q and A session. Register here.
