Salesforce chairman, co-founder and CEO, Marc Benioff, took a lot of big chances when he launched the company 20 years ago.

For starters, his was one of the earliest enterprise SaaS companies, but he wasn’t just developing a company on top of new platform, he was building one from scratch with social responsibility built-in.

Fast forward 20 years and that company is wildly successful.

In its most recent earnings report, it announced a $4 billion quarter, putting it on a $16 billion run rate, and making it by far the most successful SaaS company ever.

Even before the company had a working product, in the earliest planning documents, Salesforce wanted to be a different kind of company.

Early on, it designed the 1-1-1 philanthropic model that set aside one percent of Salesforce’s equity, and one percent of its product and one percent of its employees’ time to the community.

We’re excited to announce an addition to the Extra Crunch community perks.

Starting today, annual Extra Crunch members can get 100,000 Brex Rewards points after signing up for a Brex corporate credit card.

Brex’s corporate credit card is designed for startups, and Extra Crunch was built for the startup ecosystem.

We understand that startups are trying to be as frugal as possible with spending, and we felt that the Brex corporate credit card was the perfect way to stretch those valuable dollars.

Brex gives startup founders and finance teams higher credit limits than what they would get with any other business credit card option, and it does so without requiring a personal credit check or security deposit during the application.

There are some impressive reward multipliers across categories like rideshare, travel, and restaurants.

Last April, Spotify surprised Wall Street bankers by choosing to go public through a direct listing process rather than through a traditional IPO.

Instead of issuing new shares, the company simply sold existing shares held by insiders, employees and investors directly to the market – bypassing the roadshow process and avoiding at least some of Wall Street’s fees.

This week, we asked a panel of six experts on IPOs and direct listings: “What are the implications of direct listing tech IPOs for financial services, regulation, venture capital, and capital markets activity?”

This week’s participants include: IPO researcher Jay R. Ritter (University of Florida’s Warrington College of Business), Spotify’s CFO Barry McCarthy, fintech venture capitalist Josh Kuzon (Reciprocal Ventures), IPO attorney Eric Jensen (Cooley LLP), research analyst Barbara Gray, CFA (Brady Capital Research), and capital markets advisor Graham A. Powis (Brookline Capital Markets).

Consider this a recurring venue for debate, where leading experts – with a diverse range of vantage points and opinions – provide us with thoughts on some of the biggest issues currently in tech, startups and venture.

Our tiny-but-mighty product team launched the brand new TechCrunch mobile app for Android and iOS earlier this month and we couldn’t be more excited.

We realized usage of our mobile apps was dropping for a few reasons: the apps weren’t fully native, ads were obtrusive, there was lack of support for certain operating systems and the user interface was outdated.

My team and I were excited to come up with something unique and innovative that also could elevate the TC brand.

After sharing rough sketches and wireframes internally we realized we needed to start simple, focusing on this question: What are we offering that’s uniquely native?

These findings led us to define the first concepts with these high-level goals in mind:

That extra S we re now sporting in our URLs is a subtle change with serious impact that protects you from hacks such as the Newstweek and other, more malicious exploits.

According to Newstweek s website, the discreet gadget is intended to provide opportunity for citizens to have their turn to manipulate the press, generate propaganda or simply fix facts as they pass across a wireless network.

But technology has evolved, and the only real barrier holding media sites back from making this transition is the tedious work of ensuring all assets on our pages are served via secure connections so that they don t stop working if we make the switch, including the ads we rely on to keep our lights on.

We re proud to join them today, and hope the teams at all media organizations will take it upon themselves to prioritize these migrations, too.

Thank you for bearing with us through any negative side effects from this change.
