Meaning and history

TechCrunch Logo history

The website was launched in 2005 by a technology entrepreneur, Keith Teare and editor Michael Arrington. Together, they started a project on highlighting the technology startups and innovations across the globe.

5 years after the foundation, the project was sold to AOL, and continued its development under the new brand logotype. By 2013, the website was published in English, Chinese, French, and Japanese.

Since 2014, TechCrunch has been hosting events, inviting the representatives of large companies and technology entrepreneurs. From 2015 to 2021, the resource was owned by Verizon Media. During this time, there was a management shift: the COO, Ned Desmond, left his place after 8 years of work. His job was later parted between Matthew Panzarino and Joey Hinson.

In 2021, Verizon sold the site to Apollo Global Management, which incorporated TechCrunch into a new structure named Yahoo.

Following the acquisition by AOL, the TC logo was modernized. The text caption became bolder, and it was now accompanied by an emblem. It pictured the ‘tc’ initials, written in an angular script. The ‘c’ didn’t have its upper left corner. They also had an only-emblem version with the letters executed in many green squares of various shades, reminding the pixels.
