Capturing The Moment: A Conversation With Instagram's founders and TechCrunch's Josh Constine

Instagram allows people to capture and share the world's moments. What started as an app for creatives and photography enthusiasts has become a mirror reflecting the new and quirky behaviors of modern society. In their first on-stage appearance since leaving the company, Instagram founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger will sit-down with TechCrunch Editor-At-Large Josh Constine. They will reflect on their entrepreneurial journeys, how they scaled the popular app to over 1 billion users and what they hope their legacies will be. Systrom and Krieger will also address the new economy of influencers and the importance of establishing safe communities on social networks, which was a key priority for them while at Instagram. Last, the pair will discuss their approach to digital well-being and creative exploration as it relates to their next chapter.
