She has held prestigious executive management positions at Goldman Sachs, Target and JPMorgan Chase & Co., delivering technological advancements to run successful global businesses. As Vice President at Goldman Sachs, she was an integral member
of the technology leadership in India and served on the Women’s Network Steering Committee and Career Development Committee. Vidhya was then handpicked by Target to manage system architecture, infrastructure engagement and integration services for the Target.com eCommerce platform. After working with Target for over a year, she moved onto JP Morgan Chase & Co. as the Executive Director of Wealth Management as the key technology partner for a global operations team of over 5,000 operations users.
However when you strip away the degrees and executive positions, you find a woman influenced by her childhood on a mission to change the world—one taste bud at a time. A thought leader, Vidhya has traveled through life laying the foundation for others to follow. After years of working for others, Vidhya merged her executive management skills and entrepreneurial spirit to create a platform that provides foodies, chefs and venues a place to share their ideas, experiences and passions. Her creation, Zymmo, couples chefs with food lovers for unique culinary experiences.
Born in India, Vidhya often reminisced of her childhood meals. She remembers sitting in school with the eagerness to return home to indulge in the delicious snacks her mother had prepared. Homemade food rich in nutrients, native vegetables and spices; a mélange of diverse flavors sparking delight in her mouth with every bite. A mother herself, Vidhya carried guilt for not being able to cook a well-balanced meal for her children each evening after a long day at work. So, she left corporate America behind and ventured out on her own to develop Zymmo.
After raising seed money and hand selecting the right team to execute her idea, Vidhya developed the app to connect chefs and people with a passion for food. “Being a foodie at heart and a product strategist by trade has given me the perfect platform to execute this vision - to change the way people experience food. We’re helping food lovers experience the meaningful meals they crave, while giving freelance chefs the gigs they need.” Currently active in Austin and DC, Vidhya has her sights set on expansion in 2021, offering great food and great experiences to new cities.
Zymmo, Subramanian's new app is helping to connect Austin chefs with local area foodies. With so many out of work, or hours greatly reduced from restaurants closing, chefs are in need of employment. With Zymmo, chefs can create a profile, upload images of items they are preparing along with a price and delivery for those interested.
Zymmo is not only a great app for chefs, but for foodies tired of making the same thing week after week for their families. It answers the age old question "What's for dinner?"
Subramanian was a marketing executive at JP Morgan and also Target before become an entrepreneur. Zymmo was born out of necessity. Having a stressful job and then the need to come home and prepare meals for her family was exhausting. She knew there had to be an easier way to have delicious meals without having to dine out night after night.
