Young Achievers at Crowdsourcing Week

Apply or Nominate a Young Achiever

27 Young Achievers Under 27

We’re looking to invite 27 young achievers under 27 from across Europe to join us at Crowdsourcing Week Europe 2016.


Applications are now closed!

Thank you for the overwhelming interest in this program. If you submitted an application, you will be receiving a response from us soon.

We believe it is especially important for Europe’s emerging young leaders to understand the massive impact of the Crowd Economy, and we think no one should miss out on Crowdsourcing Week Europe because they cannot afford it. To support emerging young leaders across Europe, we’re inviting 27 of Europe’s youngest and brightest to receive a scholarship for a Full Access Pass.

The goals of the Young Achievers Program are threefold:

1) To recognize and nurture new talent and ideas
2) To ensure promising young leaders are able to attend CSW conferences, no matter their financial ability
3) Forge a global network and support ecosystem for upcoming thought leadership in the crowd economy

How does the program work?

27 young leaders will be selected to attend Crowdsourcing Week Europe, one young leader from each EU country. If selected to participate you will receive complimentary Full Access Pass for the event, access to CSW’s network of top voices in the crowd economy, recognition at the conference, and continued membership in an exclusive community of global youth innovators.

Who is eligible?

You are eligible if you can answer yes to these three questions:

Are you a young leader wanting to learn more about crowdsourcing, crowdfunding, and open innovation?
Are you 27 years old or younger, live in Europe, and can benefit from attending but can’t afford a pass – ie student, non-profit or startup?
Are you taking new ideas to action in an innovative area (including but not limited to crowdsourcing, sharing economy, fintech, big data, smart cities) perhaps as a young professional, researcher, entrepreneur or policy maker?
