With the 2014 theme "Crowd Impact: Empowering Transformation," the Crowdsourcing Week Global conference will explore the numerous ways crowdsourcing and crowdfunding are transforming business, marketing, government, finance and more. Industry leaders from public and private sectors will discuss the latest trends and case studies in crowdsourcing to improve efficiency, engagement, branding, growth and innovation within organisations. Speakers will also share their expertise on the best crowdsourcing practices and collaborative business models.
In a time of unprecedented connectivity, organizations, governments, and billion-dollar industries are embracing the crowd. This new business environment is all about efficiency, openness, and shared value. The transformations taking place are shaping the future: Finance and investing are being flipped bottom-up with crowdfunding. Big data and citizen science are enabling new advancements. New markets and disruptive business models are emerging based on the sharing economy. Brands are collaborating and co-creating with their consumers.
The number of companies & government agencies engaging in some form of crowdsourcing continues to grow exponentially, and there has never been a better time for organisations to capitalise on such growth opportunities. CSW Global is set to help business leaders remain at the forefront in the evolving digital landscape and prepare their organisations for the era of crowd-driven business.
