Crowdfunding & crowdsourcing continue to disrupt & transform markets, offering unique access to capital, talent & investment opportunities. Global crowdfunding sites raised $5.1 billion in transactions in 2013, almost double that of the $2.7 billion raised in 2012. The crowdsourcing market accounts for over 6 million workers, has the potential to redistribute global wealth & is being adopted by brands like Sony, Deloitte & Unilever. Experts share what we have learned about these platforms, & explore how they impact individuals, organizations, markets & the economy as a whole.
