Agenda

About the Agenda
The main event at TechCrunch20 is definitely showcasing our 20 hot, new product launches. Five companies will present each morning and afternoon at the conference, and five expert advisors will moderate follow-up discussions with the companies and audience about the major themes, breakthroughs, challenges and ideas that get presented.

We’ve also developed a set of six panels to weave between our presenting-company clusters. The six panels will track the key life-stage themes of today’s start-ups, including funding, advertising, premium monetization trends, marketing & distribution, communities and exits.

Of course, we’re leaving a few surprises ’til the end. Please join us for the two-day celebration of new products, ideas, debates and networking. Early-bird registration is available through July 15.

And be prepared to participate… TechCrunch20 is a full-contact conference :-)
