What is TechCrunch Used For?


TechCrunch is an online newspaper focused on high-tech and start-up businesses, established in June 2005 by Archimedes Ventures partners Michael Arrington and Keith Teare of Archimedes Ventures and acquired by AOL in 2010. Verizon later sold its media assets to Apollo Global Management; TechCrunch continues publishing today as part of Verizon.

Joey Hinson, Senior Director of Event Operations at TechCrunch, emphasizes the importance of video and face-to-face interaction when selecting an online event platform. Attendees need to have access to each other as well as speakers through this technology platform.

Disrupt Conference

TechCrunch Disrupt is an annual technology conference across North America and Europe featuring cutting-edge startups. Attendees can network with entrepreneurs, investors, tech fans, and tech enthusiasts at this event. Furthermore, Startup Battlefield allows emerging companies to showcase their innovations before judges and potential investors.

Tech leaders, startup gurus, marketing mavens, and hotshot VCs will lead sessions on topics attendees find of great benefit to them, including business strategy, trends forecasts, and technical know-how.

The TechCrunch Events App helps attendees stay informed and connected to all aspects of an event by helping them develop an itinerary tailored specifically to their preferences and goals. In addition, this app offers valuable venue maps, event updates, and notifications – essential tools that enable attendees to make the most of an expensive conference experience.


Crunchbase is a database service providing information about businesses, particularly startups. Its business profiles offer details on funding and investments, corporate investors and executives; mergers and acquisitions; news stories about these transactions; and industry trends. Furthermore, tools are provided, such as search filters and a filterable list of the highest-funded firms.

Michael Arrington launched TechCrunch Monitor in 2007 to follow startup companies covered on his tech news blog TechCrunch. Now over 60 million people utilize it – from salespeople and entrepreneurs to investors – as a prospecting, qualification, and tracking tool.

The free version of this software enables users to easily create and share lead lists among various users while also performing data enrichment through integrations with Bombora, Builtwith, and Siftery. A paid subscription offers more extensive monitoring and searching capabilities and locking profiles against unauthorized editing – helping ensure accurate company info is stored.

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is a real-time messaging app with file sharing, teleconferencing, and integration into other productivity tools. Users can create private channels devoted to particular projects or topics, while public channels enable anyone within a workspace to read what has been posted. Direct messaging capabilities also exist within this software, such as marking urgent messages that send a notification every two minutes until a response comes back from its recipient.

Teams are more than chat: it offers videoconferencing for up to 250 participants and automated meeting minutes through “Meeting Recap.” Furthermore, this application integrates seamlessly with other Microsoft apps like Outlook, Yammer, and SharePoint.

Additionally, it has introduced features tailored to appeal to millennials and Gen Z workers who expect more from their workplace experiences, such as Together mode, which transforms user video feeds into virtual environments like conference rooms or cafes, or Shifts, which provides scheduling functionality alongside team messaging capabilities for remote workers.
