TechCrunch is a news website focused on information technology companies, ranging in size from startups to established NASDAQ-100 firms. It was founded by Michael Arrington in 2005. On September 28, 2010, at its TechCrunch Disrupt conference in San Francisco, AOL announced that it would acquire TechCrunch. The transaction was rumored to be between $25m and $40m.
TechCrunch Disrupt is an annual conference hosted by TechCrunch in San Francisco, New York City and Beijing, which began in 2011 and is where some technology startups launch their products and services competing on stage in front of venture capital potential investors, media and other interested parties.
TechCrunch operates CrunchBase which is a website that allows users to look up technology company information from its database. Anyone may edit the information in CrunchBase— for this reason, CrunchBase is sometimes improperly cited as a "source" for Wikipedia articles. Because the site does not have editorial oversight, it is not well suited to this purpose.
The Crunchies is an award ceremony, run by TechCrunch,which celebrates the most compelling startups, internet and technology innovations of the year.
