What is this phenomenon of Crowdsourcing?

All great ideas and projects need resources to make them happen. The Internet has opened that pool of resources which were never available before.

The Internet has given a new meaning to the word “Openness” by opening up all kinds of resources for collaborating regardless of the size of your business especially for startups.

Wikipedia, e-Learning, crowdfunding, project management and even sharing economy are some good examples.

Come and listen to some great speakers with a dash of fun, network with our sponsors, your peers and some industry leaders.
