TechCrunch is an American online publisher of technology industry news. It primarily covers the business side of tech, reporting breaking tech news, bold opinions on new products, thorough analysis of emerging trends in tech, and regular profiling of popular new tech businesses, from early stage startups to publicly traded companies. Notable journalists and contributors include Josh Constine, Mike Butcher, Matthew Panzarino, Matt Burns, Jordan Crook, Ingrid Lunden, Frederic Lardinois, Connie Loizos, Sarah Perez, Darrell Etherington, Alexia Tsotsis, Michael Arington, Eric Eldon, Kim Mai Cutler, Anthony Ha, and many others. The website is owned by Oath Inc.

On September 28, 2010, at its Disrupt conference in San Francisco, AOL announced that it would acquire TechCrunch.[4][5] The price was rumored to be between $25 million and $40 million.[6]

TechCrunch Disrupt[edit]

TechCrunch Disrupt is an annual conference hosted by TechCrunch in San Francisco,[7] New York City,[8] and Europe (London or Berlin), which began in 2011 and is where new technology startups launch their products and services competing on stage in front of venture capital potential investors, media and other interested parties for prize money and publicity. Past participants include Dropbox, Beam, Vurb, Trello, Mint, Yammer, Agrilyst, Crate.io and many more.

CrunchBase[edit]

TechCrunch operates CrunchBase, a database of the startup ecosystem consisting of investors, incubators and start-ups, which comprises around 500,000 data points profiling companies, people, funds, fundings and events. The company claims to have more than 50,000 active contributors. Members of the public, subject to registration, can make submissions to the database; however, all changes are subject to review by a moderator before being accepted. Data is constantly reviewed by editors to ensure it is up to date. In 2013, CrunchBase said it had 2 million users accessing its database each month.[9] As of 2015, women represented only 16% of the people in Crunchbase. [10]

AOL is in dispute with start-up Pro Populi over that group's use of the entire CrunchBase dataset in apps that Pro Populi has developed, one of which is known as People+. Pro Populi is being represented by the Electronic Frontier Foundation.[11]

Crunchies[edit]

In 2008, TechCrunch started The Crunchies award ceremony, which celebrates the "most compelling startups, internet and technology innovations of the year".[12] Techcrunch often creates a list of the top startups and the funding they received. Twelve categories have been awarded in 2016, including "Best New Startup", "Best Overall Startup", and "Best Mobile App".[13] 2016 was also the first year awarding the Diversity Award.[14]

Public persona[edit]

TechCrunch has more than 8 million followers on Twitter,[15] and more than 2.5 million likes on Facebook.[16]

In 2014, TechCrunch Disrupt was featured in an arc of the HBO series Silicon Valley.[17] The characters' startup "Pied Piper" participates on a startup battle at TechCrunch Disrupt.[17] According to TechCrunch editor Sam O'Keefe, the show's representation of the conference was "obscenely accurate".[17]

Controversy[edit]

A scandal erupted over the Titstare application, created by participants in a hackathon at Disrupt 2013.[18][19][20]

In 2011, the site came under fire for possible ethics violations. These included claims that Arrington's investments in certain firms which the site had covered created a conflict of interest.[21] The controversy that ensued eventually led to Arrington's departure, and other writers, including Paul Carr and Sarah Lacy, followed suit.[22][23]

Available languages[edit]

TechCrunch is currently available in English, Chinese[24] and Japanese.[25] It had a French edition, which was folded into[clarification needed] TechCrunch.com.[26]
