WSJ reporter Shieber joins TechCrunch
Jon Shieber, a reporter for The Wall Street Journal for the past eight years, has joined TechCrunch.
At The Journal, Shieber covered venture capital and clean technology as well as private equity. He also covered private equity from Shanghai for three years.
Shieber writes, “Here at TechCrunch, and over at CrunchBase, I’ve been tasked with helping everyone find the signals on where venture capital investment – and technology development – are heading through the noise of daily funding announcements, new product launches, new product updates, add-on acquisitions, new hires, etc. etc. etc.
“There’s a massive amount of useful data that we have on CrunchBase and we’re going to try and use it to provide more context for you around the day’s news. Hopefully you, the TechCrunch community, will lend a helping hand (I’m lazy and y’all are way smarter than I am).
“Anyway, it’s nice to be here. I hope I get to stick around for a while.”
