STANFORD DAILY – Nov 10 - In the midst of the global pandemic, Vidya Madhavan MBA '21 founded Schmooze, a Tinder-esque app that fosters online connections based on meme taste. A second-year MBA candidate at the Graduate School of Business, Madhavan discovered the potential for meme-based connection while managing another venture, LuMos Inc., an AI-powered startup aimed towards editing passport and visa photos. Schmooze users can swipe right on the memes they relate to or find funny, and the app will connect people with compatible tastes. Schmooze offered "basic image-editing features along with a wealth of meme templates." Beyond content sharing, Madhavan thinks Schmooze's specialized focus can change and democratize meme creation.
