Crowdfunding and crowdsourcing continue to disrupt and transform markets, offering unique access to capital, talent and 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 and is being adopted by brands like Sony, Deloitte and Unilever. Experts share what we have learned about these platforms, and explore how they impact individuals, organizations, markets and the economy as a whole.
