The people formerly known as consumers can now get what they need from each other -
and it changes everything.
People are using technology to share resources like homes, cars and tools, disrupting whole industries. Makers are selling high-value, artisanal goods around the corner and around the world, displacing traditional large manufacturers. The CROWD is becoming a company unto itself - it’s backed by powerful technologies, like social networks and mobile devices, and it is self-organizing. Companies are changing their business models to partner with this CROWD, changing innovation, manufacturing, fulfillment, and customer relations.
Join your peers at CROWD COMPANIES to understand and embrace this new way of doing business.
The bold question this council answers is:
“What role do companies play, if THE CROWD gets what they need from each other?”
Crowd Companies exists to be a catalyst for change at large companies
