TechCrunch was founded in June 2005 by Archimedes Ventures, led by partners Michael Arrington and Keith Teare. In 2010, AOL acquired the company for approximately $25 million. Since the acquisition of AOL and Yahoo by Verizon, the site has been owned by Verizon Media.
TechCrunch is also best known for its Disrupt conferences; an annual technology event hosted in several cities across United States, Europe, and China.
In May 2021, an announcement was made on a planned sale of TechCrunch’s parent company, Verizon, to Apollo Global Management for $5 billion. The deal finalized in September 2021. Verizon retained 10% of the newly rebranded company.
