L.A. Tech Talent Pipeline students take a tour of Tastemade
On Sept. 20, students in Bixel Exchange’s L.A. Tech Talent Pipeline had the opportunity to tour Tastemade’s headquarters in Santa Monica. Tastemade shared their company mission and story, and how they are expanding beyond food to travel, home and lifestyle. At the end of the Tastemade tour, students' content production skills were put to the test – they made an Instagram story around some beautiful DK donuts! It was great seeing the creativity that came out of the group. Huge shoutout to Tastemade for an amazing time!
