TechCrunch Moscow 2011December 5, 2011, 10:00 conference
On December 5th, 2011 TechCrunch came to Moscow again. Co-organized by TechCrunch Europe, Digital October and Kite Ventures, the second TechCrunch Moscow carried on the tradition of showcasing the most promising startups, uncovering the latest news and discussing the emerging technology trends and breakthroughs.
Last year, we hosted the first ever TechCrunch Moscow. The event proved to be a smashing success, bringing together over 700 participants and attracting several thousand viewers online. Videos of the conference and individual interviews can be viewed online here.
As in 2010, Mike Butcher of TechCrunch Europe and Edward Shenderovich of Kite Ventures MC-ed the conference. The agenda combined panel discussions and fireside chats with the industry leaders. The conference culminated with the Startup Battle featuring the most promising and ambitious Russian companies that would hopefully make us very proud.
This time, the lineup of speakers included: Sergey Beloussov (founder of Parallels, partner at Runa Capital); Rob Cassedy (Ebay); Sasha Galitsky (Almaz Capital); Maelle Gavet (Ozon, Russia's biggest online bookseller); Morten Lund (Everbread); Laurent Le Moal (PayPal Europe); Christian Lahng (CEO, Tradeshift); Denis Sverdlov (Yota, Russia's Wimax operator); Arkady Volozh (Yandex, Russia's leading search engine) and many others.
The conference was be held in English, simultaneously translated into Russian. As always, live broadcast in HD quality was made available in both languages, on the TC Moscow 2011 website.
