  • Cautiously Optimistic: CrunchBase Q2 Report Shows Upticks In VC Funding and Exits

    Is the worst behind us? The broad worldwide recession hit the venture capital and startup communities hard last year.

But it appears that the worst… Read More

  • Win A Ticket To The Real-Time Stream CrunchUp This Friday

    For the past few weeks, TechCrunchIT editor Steve Gillmor and I have been pulling together speakers and demos for our Real-Time Stream CrunchUp this Friday.

  • Voilà le TechCrunch meetup in Paris

    TechCrunch meetups are happening nearly everywhere. There is no reason they should not happen in France either, where there is a vibrant TechCrunch community (TechCrunch France is one of the main French blogs). The idea of a Paris meetup started actually very casually a couple of weeks ago as I was just twitting about it. The event is now sold out but we might have a few more tickets to give… Read More
