TechCrunch invites NGO’s and nonprofit organizations to exhibit at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco on September 7th. Organizations can apply here.

Founded in 2014, the TechCrunch Include Program aims to facilitate opportunities in tech for underserved and underrepresented communities. The TC Nonprofit Program is one initiative of this program.

Through an application, TechCrunch will select 10 nonprofit and/or NGOs to showcase on the Startup Alley show floor at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco.

Apply here. Organizations will exhibit in Startup Alley on September 7th and receive two full conference passes, one exhibit space, inclusion in the printed program and online program guide, Wi-Fi and a branded tabletop sign.

Android blatantly copies the iPhone X navigation gestures

Google unveiled some of the new features in the next version of Android at its developer conference. One feature looked particularly familiar. Android P will get new navigation gestures to switch between apps. And it works just like the iPhone X.“As part of Android P, we’re introducing a new system navigation that we’ve been working on for more than a year now,” VP of Android Engineering Dave Burke said. “And the new design makes Android multitasking more approachable and easier to understand.”While Google has probably been working on a new multitasking screen for a year, it’s hard to believe that the company didn’t copy Apple. The iPhone X was unveiled in September 2017.On Android P, the traditional home, back and multitasking buttons are gone. There’s a single pill-shaped button at the center of the screen. If you swipe up from this button, you get a new multitasking view with your most recent apps. You can swipe left and right and select the app you’re looking for.If you swipe up o…

It also integrates seamlessly into Square’s existing ecosystem that includes Payroll, Capital and more. Given Square’s ownership…

Recapping the TechCrunch China Shenzhen 2018 event

This year we returned to Shenzhen, the Chinese city known as the world’s ‘Silicon Valley for hardware,’ for an event that was packed full of future-looking discussions, innovative startups, experienced founders, VCs and more.We love Shenzhen. Sure, Beijing has Zhongguancun and Shanghai has its international and diverse entrepreneurial community. But Shenzhen has a certain je ne sais quoi, an energy that pervades the entire city. Maybe it’s the great weather or maybe its youth of the place — both the residents and the age of the city itself — but every time we come to this southern city, we’re amazed by the people, projects, and companies thriving here.#Shenzhen, not Beijing or Shanghai, is the forerunner of Chinese innovation, says @ganglu, founder and CEO of TechNode #tcshenzhen@technodechina#reshapinginnovationpic.twitter.com/7ZX2o2Cpg1— TechNode (@technodechina) November 19, 2018 This year was no different.
