Cyber city Bengaluru is getting ready to host on September 9 and 10, 2016, the first-ever Crowd Sourcing Summit to be held in India. The Summit is being organized by Digital Empowerment Foundation in collaboration with the global platform Crowdsourcing Week (CSW) and will be open to anyone interested in the concept of Crowd Sourcing. Masters from the field of Crowd Sourcing will be present to speak about the concept during the summit. Businesses and civil society organizations are expected to benefit immensely from participating in the summit.
Crowdsourcing Week was founded as a for-profit in 2012 and since then has produced flagship global conferences, organized crowd sourcing summits across three continents, and built excitement around a global movement. Crowdsourcing Week is committed to help organizations transition into a more open, connected, and socially productive society. It focuses on how crowdsourcing can address the needs of today’s leaders to bring about meaningful change. The big, ambitious goal is to get everyone thinking about collaborating with their stakeholders to create shared value. It has offices in Singapore and London.
Both Crowdsourcing Week and DEF together bring their vision, management and technical know-how to the table for Indian business and civil society organisations to understand the formula to scale business in today’s challenging economy. The combined skill set and knowledge will be a rare opportunity for organizations to leverage and learn about management capabilities with regard to crowdsourcing.

The summit will provide organizations access to new ideas and solutions, opportunities to learn about deeper consumer engagement and co-creation, optimization of tasks, and reduced costs. Crowdsourcing can democratize problem solving and accelerate innovation. It has the potential to revolutionize the business methodology, just as crowd funding is currently challenging traditional banking and investing processes. The summit has a 21st-century mindset and approach that can be applied in many areas and many ways to the business field.
