Crowdsourcing Week, in partnership with the Digital Empowerment Foundation, is delighted to bring its first summit to India on September 10 in Bangalore. It will focus on crowdfunding and collaborative approaches that define a sharing economy and local and international speakers will share their thoughts and ideas on how crowdsourcing is reshaping industries and transforming organisations – not in the future but today. And it will be an invaluable opportunity for delegates to network and engage with decision makers, entrepreneurs and leading experts in crowdsourcing and crowdfunding.

It’s a ‘must-attend event’ for c-suite executives, government officials, entrepreneurs, start-ups and non-profit organizations alike who would like to harness open and collaborative solutions, and the event will take place at The Paul Bangalore. Tickets are available here.
