Run The World is a one-stop shop virtual events platform with a focus on community engagement. TechCrunch has written about Run The World in the past. It launched in 2019, with backers like Andreessen Horowitz and Founders Fund, and skyrocketed in popularity when COVID canceled in-person events and created an overwhelming desire for one-on-one connection. Run The World has since grown to 45 employees and has hosted more than 10,000 events, including for TechCrunch. 

At this AMA, Xiaoyin and TechCrunch will discuss: 

  • How COVID changed the virtual event roadmap
  • What virtual events look like when in-person events come back
  • Lessons learned from managing products at Facebook and Instagram
  • What’s next for Run The World
  • Audience Q&A 
  • 1:1 networking using Run The World

Who should attend? Event organizers, event marketers, event sponsors. 

It’s free. Register here and submit your questions for Xiaoyin.
