MAKERS@ Announces Key Corporate Partners for The MAKERS Conference

Today, we're excited to announce our first partners for MAKERS@: an invitation-only program that provides a platform for companies to celebrate and acknowledge their game-changing female employees. As the purpose of MAKERS is to celebrate the women who have made their mark on history over the last 50 years, the goal of the conference is to create change for women in the workplace over the next 50 years.

Through MAKERS@, these companies will receive access to the inaugural MAKERS Conference, a first-of-its-kind gathering of leaders and trailblazers across industries centered on women and work and setting an agenda for change in the workplace. The conference will take place from February 10-12, 2014 at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

Our select group of partners include: American Express OPEN, AOL, BBDO, Edelman, Google, Hearst Corporation/Marie Claire magazine, Javelin Marketing Group, Microsoft, Ogilvy & Mather, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC), Verizon, and founding partner Morgan Stanley Wealth Management.

The gathering will highlight the very best of our MAKERS' stories, creatively woven together with one on one interviews, fireside chats, lively panels, cutting edge case studies, and entertainment. We're thrilled to announce Kara Swisher, creator of the All Things D conference, as emcee. Sessions will also be led by groundbreaking "MAKERS" profiled on MAKERS.com together with celebrities, not-for-profit industry leaders and key policy-makers including Gloria Steinem, Sheryl Sandberg (COO, Facebook), Megan Smith (GoogleX), Wendy Clark (Coke), Bob Moritz (US Chairman and Senior Partner, PwC), Tim Armstrong (CEO, AOL), Michelle Kydd Lee (CAA Foundation), Linda Alvarado (Alvarado Construction), and many more.

Since our inception in February 2012 and the release of the documentary MAKERS: Women Who Make America earlier this year, we've honored exceptional women and their pioneering contributions to helping shape the world. With the very first MAKERS conference, we are encouraging partners to continue our mission of empowering and honoring tomorrow's innovative leaders.

AOL Mobile Launches New TechCrunch iPad App at Disrupt NYC 2012


Preparing for post-Disrupt letdown once TechCrunch's conference closes tonight after the awarding of the Disrupt cup? Don't fret, the TechCrunch team has got you covered! Today, on stage, the team unveiled the new TechCrunch iPad app which is now available to download from the iTunes store.

We understand that news is most valuable to readers when they can explore differing perspectives and then put it into broader context. Keeping this idea at front of mind, the team designed the app to be the ultimate research tool – not just a TechCrunch newsfeed.

Integrating TechCrunch articles, Crunchbase profiles and even content from other publishers, the app encapsulate everything going on in the nonstop tech world right in one place. A sidebar built from Crunchbase profiles of the key players mentioned in stories gives readers a better understanding of the relationships at play within a given piece. Meanwhile, content from other authoritative publishers helps provide a holistic view of the story and what it means for the industry as a whole.

Another key feature of the app is our trending news section. Instead of just pulling what's most popular, the feature filters stories by comments, page views and social shares to determine an article's "heat and velocity," giving readers an idea of a topic's potential impact across various social platforms.

Download the app today by clicking here.
