Weintraub Tobin and LAVA Digital Media Group will host a panel discussion on "How Has Digital Media Changed the Way We Interact with Food" where we will examine the effect digital media has had on our relationship with food and dining.
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.
- Bruce Seidel, Digital Media Strategist, and former CEO of Electus' YouTube Food Channel.
