TechCrunch is a leading technology media platform, dedicated to obsessively profiling startups and reviewing new internet and tech news. In this episode, we pick the brains of Ned Desmond, the COO of TechCrunch, who joined us live at TechCrunch Shanghai this year. Ned chats with us about the hottest cross-border startups, the $6 billion USD that TechCrunch companies have raised, and also looks back on the biggest challenges that TechCrunch has faced. We also discuss the cultural phenomenon of Silicon Valley, its representation in popular media, and the impact this image has had on global startups. It doesn’t matter whether you’re in Silicon Valley or Silicon Alley in Beijing, this episode has something for every curious entrepreneur and investor!
