In recent times, internet has been a major catalyst for social productivity engaging India’s decision makers and entrepreneurs to connect with top experts in crowd sourcing. Digital Empowerment Foundation takes an initiative with Crowdsourcing Week, to organize the Crowdsourcing Summit in the Paul, Bangalore on 10th September to address the needs of today’s leaders to bring about meaningful change.
The summit is uniquely designed to help businesses, governments, innovators and not-for-profits tackle risk mitigation and stakeholder orientation while creating a culture of openness and innovation. It will serve as a catalyst to help organisations take a holistic look at their operations, engage their stakeholders and create long-term value. Also, it aims to help to invigorate the crowdsourcing movement on a local level through ambassadors who will build community and represent the Crowd Sourcing brand in their region.
Companies and enterprises can now engage with their stakeholders on a completely new level, through more than just social media interactions, and can actually work together to create value for everyone. Crowdsourcing is where social media turns into social productivity.
