Ben Huh      

CEO of Cheezburger, Co-founder of Circa

Ben Huh has always been a start-up guy. His company, Pet Holdings, has been credited with bringing internet memes to the mainstream and popularizing internet culture. Huh founded Pet Holdings, Inc. in 2007 and grew it into one of the largest blog networks in the world in less than two years--while making a profit during one of the deepest recessions. The success of his business is attributed to his knowledge of memes, viral content, and crowd sourcing.

His blogs, which accumulate LOLcats, Photobombs, squee-worthy baby animals, and more, are all built by users' contributions, and have created a true online community. Called the "King of Cheez" by Wired magazine, Huh is a marquee name of internet business, having demonstrated how to take unique ideas and nurture them towards success.

Ben Huh is not shy about crediting the success of his company to the users and fans and those who started the sites he acquired, such as icanhascheezburger.com and failblog.org. His goal is to make the world happy for five minutes a day. Huh and his staff at ICanHasCheezburger are now featured on the Bravo series LOLWork, a humorous behind-the-scenes look at the day-to-day of one of the most popular websites on the Internet.

Huh is also the co-founder of the news app Circa, a 2012 startup that is trying to redefine how the public consumes news. Circa promotes itself as the best way to read the news on your phone. It's news without the fluff, filler, or commentary. Circa’s editors gather top stories and break them down to their essential points -- facts, quotes, photos, and more, formatted specifically for the phone.
