CEO of “Most Innovative Company” of 2017
A few weeks ago, Fast Company announced their anticipated list of the “Most Innovative Companies” of 2017. Cheddar, launched last year by Jon Steinberg, made the list. (If you’re not familiar with Cheddar, it’s an online-only TV channel covering finance and business news. They recently received a major investment from Comcast and already have 500,000 daily viewers.)
In his speeches, Jon talks about finding new growth opportunities, understanding new audiences (millennials in particular), and spotting consumer trends before they happen. Here's a recent Huffington Post piece on Jon and what he’s doing at Cheddar.
Before founding Cheddar, Jon was the COO of Buzzfeed—he joined in its early days and grew the company from $0 to $60 million in annual revenue by exploring uncharted advertising waters and developing breakthrough growth strategies. Jon was named to AdAge’s 2015 “40 Under 40” list, 2012 “Media Mavens” list, sits on the board of Bustle, and serves as an adviser to TheSkimm.
