Via video recording, new TechCrunch Chief Editor Erick Schonfeld opened up ChinaBang Day 2. As one of the most influential tech blogs and aggregators of on the ground start-up news in the Silicon Valley, TechCrunch is positioned at the forefront for knowing the latest tech trends.

There is an “explosion of start-ups” Schonfeld said. The reason is because there has never been an easier time to launch a start-up. There are ready available platforms like Facebook and Twitter, plug-ins, api’s to build products quicker and with more reach. This generation has a “real unique opportunity to test different business models and test new products” says Schonfeld.

Erick talked about the American start-up ethos of ‘shipping’ products fast and often to take advantage of a quicker customer feedback loop. Erick believes that, as this ethos is embraced around the world, we will continue to see very creative breakthrough ideas and products that make our lives easier and better.
