Ben Huh, CEO, Cheezburger Inc.
Cheezburger, the company behind popular sites such as I Can Has Cheezburger?, FAIL Blog, Memebase, and The Daily What, is one of the largest online humor publishers in the world where millions of people come every month to get their 5-minutes of happiness. In 1999, Huh graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in journalism and although English was not his first language, he says, “I got a degree in a language I didn’t speak because I felt something in the power of media that attracted me.”
Huh has been a speaker at SXSW, Web 2.0 Summit and TEDx Seattle. In 2010, Huh was named to Fast Company’s list of the “Most Creative People in Business.” Currently, Huh can be seen on the Bravo Network’s LOLWork, a series based on the inner workings of the website I Can Has Cheezburger.
