Copenhagen continues to prove itself as Europe’s Crowd Capital: from the 16th-18th of October the city hosts Crowdsourcing Week Europe 2014 – a crowd conference covering topics in crowd-sourcing, innovation and collaboration. The conference will be held at the IT University of Copenhagen on Rued Langgaards Vej 7. Space is limited, so register now and spare yourself the regret of missing out!

The Idea

The 3-day conference is dedicated to all things crowd: we’re talking crowd-funding, crowd-sourcing, crowded rooms… If you’re an investor, business owner, marketer, NGO, IGO or anything in between, this conference promises to equip you with the ideas and inspiration to guide you in innovation in whatever field you reside.

This is the first time Crowd Sourcing Week will take place in Europe. Similar events have been hosted in Singapore, such as the week-long conference, Crowd Sourcing Global, which hosted over 50 international speakers and experts, delegates from more than 30 countries, as well as numerous exciting new startups and established companies.

This year the focus is on Crowd Impact – Empowering Transformations’, which hopes to highlight organizational transformations within the crowd economy.

“Crowdsourcing is not an industry. It is not a technology. It is a mindset. It is a practice that accelerates a new kind of social productivity – one that is transforming our social DNA in a highly networked world. We are more open to sharing, crowdfunding and creating collaborative futures today than ever before. We want to empower new and existing leaders to lead this transformation from within their organizations,” says Epi Ludvik Nekaj, Founder and CEO of Crowdsourcing Week.
