Product design expert Scott Tong will join us at TC Early Stage in July

Thoughtful and high-quality product design is no longer optional. Gone are the days that a startup could launch with a bare-bones app or website. The demand side of the design equation has only grown — consumers are used to beautiful, intuitive products — while the supply side is struggling to keep up. How are startups supposed to educate themselves in product design, hire the right people for those positions and think about product design as a core piece of their business? A good starting point...

  Fireworks illuminate the night sky at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Tuesday, July 2, 2019.

Take-Two Interactive Uses E3 Panel to Talk About Diversity & Inclusion Instead of Games

Perhaps having nothing of value to actually show, game company Take-Two Interactive used its spot in the E3 lineup to talk about the oh so important “diversity and inclusion” as opposed to actual games, the usual nonsense that is constantly forced down the throats of not only those who play games but most Westerners in […]

E3 2021 wrap-up

E3 2021 kicked off with news about E3 2022. Kind of a funny way to start a show, as Mayor Eric Garcetti told the crowd, “we look forward to seeing you in-person, here in the City of Angels, in 2022.” Also a bit funny when the mayor’s video game show announcement has less confetti and Minions than his state-reopening speech, but that’s something for another post. It’s understandable, of course, that E3’s organizers led with that news. The 2021 show was, like so many other things over the past yea...

Yasmin Razavi of Spark Capital will sit in judgment at TechCrunch Disrupt 2021’s Startup Battlefield

Joining us onstage as a judge for TechCrunch Disrupt 2021‘s Startup Battlefield will be Yasmin Razavi, general partner at Spark Capital.

Mar Hershenson joins us at TechCrunch Disrupt on how to craft your pitch deck

Pitching is the single-most important skill a founder needs to refine to be successful in building a startup. You can’t attract a co-founder, teammates, customers or investors without a well-crafted pitch about your product and vision, and so learning how to pitch and communicate effectively tends to be the first gateway to early entrepreneurial success. While books and talks galore have been published on pitching, the reality is that the art of the pitch deck is a constantly changing fashion. T...

Life is Strange: True Colors Now Wielding the “Superpower” of “Empathy”

The Life is Strange series has somehow become even more of a joke than the last political title as the impending Life is Strange: True Colors has its heroine wielding the “superpower” that is empathy, causing many to suspect it will also contain even more nauseating woke elements whilst preaching rhetoric to players.

E3 2021 catch up

If you’re like me, you spent the weekend longing for the mixed bag that is downtown Los Angeles during E3. I’ve got fond memories of fish tacos, The Last Bookstore, watching playoff basketball in garishly lit hotel lobbies and, of course, video game press conference after video game press conference. For a second year in a row, the show’s gone all virtual, owing to…well, you know, that pesky virus that has defined the past year and a half of our lives. Last year’s show was canceled altogether (t...

How can Product Managers deal with multiple stakeholders: Introducing the Group Mentoring Session by Movin Jain, Director of Product, PhonePe

Product managers have to wear multiple hats. Apart from being master communicators, they need to learn the art of managing different stakeholders across the org. Right from engineering to marketing, sales, support, and of course, the leadership team. This is almost a political role, minus the power (and influence). And this isn’t easy. Most product managers struggle with this in their career. And this is where SEEK mentoring comes to the rescue. Learn the art of managing stakeholder...
