In this session, we have an exciting conversation lined up between two powerhouses in their respective fields: Steve Stoute, the Founder and CEO of UnitedMasters and Translation, and Gayle King, the Co-host of CBS Mornings and editor-at-large of Oprah Daily.
The session titled “The Business of Culture” promises to be a thought-provoking exploration of Steve Stoute’s storied career as an entrepreneur across music, advertising, and technology. At the heart of Stoute’s 30-year career is his animating thesis: “The most powerful force in creating financial capital is cultural capital.” With his extensive experience in the music industry, including producing albums for top artists like Mariah Carey and Nas, and executive producing the Academy Award-winning film and soundtrack for 8 Mile, Stoute has a unique perspective on the intersection of technology, culture, innovation, and storytelling.
In conversation with Gayle King, a seasoned television journalist known for her revealing and news-making interviews with world leaders, political figures, and celebrities, Stoute will delve into the underlying technological and cultural shifts over the last 10 years that many overlook. They will discuss how these shifts shape the unique perils and opportunities for brands, creators, and consumers alike. Stoute’s companies, UnitedMasters and Translation, operate at the forefront of connecting brands to culture through insights and creativity, with a brand-to-culture platform that leverages cultural capital to engage audiences in a new, sophisticated way. With funding from Alphabet, Andreessen Horowitz, and 21st Century Fox, Stoute’s companies are driving innovation in the industry and empowering artists to maintain ownership over their creative and economic potential.
This session promises to be a captivating exploration of the evolving landscape of business and culture, with Stoute and King bringing their wealth of knowledge and experience to the forefront. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights and stay ahead of the curve in the ever-changing world of technology, advertising, and music.
