Who attends? Is CSW Europe for me?

Our program intentionally brings together crowd experts from across all organizational departments and industry sectors – gathering innovative leaders from across research, government, business, finance, institutional, and entrepreneurial fields. Crowdsourcing is transforming nearly every company in every industry, and we all have a lot to learn from each other. We’ve intentionally built CSW events to focus on all of the paradigms that come with the crowd economy. CSW is about perspective. Learn more about who attends here.
