CSW SUMMIT LONDON 2013
The Changing Web: Crowd-Powered Solutions
for Enterprise and Startups
Thursday, October 3, 8:30am - 5:00pm
The business operating climate in the UK, as well as globally, is rapidly changing with emerging disruptive technologies, increasing cost of business and bigger competition. Remaining competitive in such an environment requires innovation, an agile team and strategic approaches that harness connectivity and new web solutions.
Crowdsourcing Week (CSW), in partnership with KPMG, is proud to present a one-day summit on crowdsourcing for management executives and business owners. This summit will introduce business leaders to crowd-powered tools that will help them grow the longterm viability of their organizations. Today, crowdsourcing is being used to spur innovation, create a community of loyal brand followers and finding investors through crowdfunding.
The compact yet informative program will help executives and entrepreneurs:
- Adapt to an ever-changing technological climate
- Capitalize on new opportunities and business avenues
- Learn effective stakeholder engagement strategies
- Find new ways to fund and grow businesses
