Technology publisher TechCrunch laid off around eight staff members Monday, part of a larger restructuring at the title as it seeks to refocus its coverage around the investors, founders and startups of Silicon Valley, according to an internal memo obtained by ADWEEK.

The publisher also plans to wind down its paid subscription product, TC+, as part of this effort, editor in chief Connie Loizos told staff. 

“We’ll be sunsetting the TechCrunch+ subscription product in the coming weeks and will refocus our talented writers and editors on strengthening our core product,” Loizos wrote.
