MAD (Danish for food) empowers the hospitality community with the tools, inspiration, and knowledge to make a difference in their restaurants and the world. MAD was founded in 2011 by René Redzepi, chef and co-owner of restaurant noma, with the ambition of transforming hospitality and driving change in food systems.

MAD consists of two legal entities: Komitéen for MAD Symposium in Denmark and MAD Foundation, a nonprofit organization incorporated in the state of New York (EIN #47-4561918). The organization currently has eight employees in Denmark, and one in the US.

As a small, and growing organization, MAD thrives when its staff functions as a cohesive, collaborative team, where everyone helps out as needed. To this end, every staff member is called upon to contribute to MAD’s success, which may mean occasionally fulfilling a role or duty not specifically listed in the job description.
