Our Mission

Crowdsourcing Week is committed to help organizations transition into a more open, connected, and socially productive society. We focus on how crowdsourcing can address the needs of today’s leaders to bring about meaningful change. Our big, ambitious goal is to get everyone thinking about collaborating with their stakeholders to create shared value.

“Companies and enterprises can now engage with their stakeholders on a completely new level, through more than just social media interactions, and can actually work together to create value for everyone. Crowdsourcing is where social media turns into social productivity.”

Our Story

An early believer in the potential of crowdsourcing, Epi Ludvik Nekaj created Ludvik+Partners in 2008, one of New York’s hottest boutique virtual ad agencies built on a 100% crowdsourcing model. The idea for something bigger took seed when Ludvik+Partners and Collective Bias organized the event, How Crowdsourcing is Changing the Advertising Business during Internet Week in 2011. Epi understood that engagement and knowledge transfer in this space could help organizations overcome their shortcomings and create real stakeholder value. The rest is history. Crowdsourcing Week was founded in 2012 and since then produced three flagship global conferences, organized crowdsourcing summits across three continents, and built excitement around a global movement.

“Love the cause, the people involved, it’s precedent-setting nature and the fact that crowdsourcing and all its variants will only become a bigger part of our digital, business, financing, citizenry, creative and cultural future.”
