Taking place in Singapore from 07 to 11 April 2014, CSW Global will bring together hundreds of innovative leaders for an inside look at the collaborative business practices required to flourish in our increasingly connected world.

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.

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.

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.
