Let's discuss the special breakout sessions hosted by our partners. These sessions are smaller and deliver real value, which is consistent with all TechCrunch events.

Partner in well-respected VC firms spoke and were easy to reach, sharing smart and insightful insights. Repositax CEO Michael McCarthy
