TechCrunch Moscow 2012. Conference day
On December 9–10 Digital October Center, Kite Ventures and AOL Tech Media presented TechCrunch Moscow 2012.
TechCrunch is a leading technology media property, dedicated to obsessively profiling startups, reviewing new internet products and breaking tech news. Since the first TechCrunch Moscow in 2010, the event gained reputation of a major splash of the up-and-coming Russian venture industry.
TechCrunch Moscow 2012 has grown from a TechCrunch Europe meetup to a higher level event, a first of its kind for TechCrunch. TechCrunch Moscow 2012 was a world-class event that featured some of the world’s leading technology entrepreneurs.
Theme of this year's conference was War and Peace. We juxtaposed competing business models, strategies, technologies, and also discuss new markets, companies, and leaders — two days packed with insightful interviews, stimulating discussions, and hot startups.
