40 Becomes 50 In This Year’s TechCrunch Startup Conference

Filed as News on April 3, 2008 2:13 am

TechCrunch40 becomes TechCrunch50, sporting 50 startups as opposed to last year’s 40. More money, three days (September 8-10), and more exposure as well as venture capital I’d reckon. As usual, there are a bunch of high profile names sponsoring the even, including both Microsoft and Google this year. All details in a TechCrunch post of course.

The TechCrunch40 conference debuted last year, and the companies featured is said to have raised over $143 million in VC money, which is a whopping number for sure. The project is initiated and pushed by TechCrunch owner Michael Arrington, and blogosphere hotshot Jason Calacanis.
