Boulder, CO (PRWEB) November 01, 2011
A year after inception, Crowdsortium, a crowdsourcing industry group, announces they have reached 200 members, including: researchers, practitioners, VC’s, and customers.
The Crowdsortium is pleased to announce they have hit the two hundred-member milestone! One year ago, the Crowdsortium publically announced themselves at CrowdConf 2010, and today they have welcomed their 200th member, crowdcube. The group was created on the assumptions that if one company was facing questions and issues, then so were others. CEO of Trada, Niel Robertson, discussed this assumption with other companies, finding consistent questions between everyone. The initial conversations led to the conception of the Crowdsortium.
Founding members of the Crowdsortium:
- Napkin Labs
- Victors & Spoils
- Get Satisfaction
- Organized Wisdom
- Amazon Mechanical Turk
The Crowdsortium prides itself on providing significant resources for members, providing access to one another’s experiences and expertise. It is relevant to have a common space where all companies, and members can discuss trends, problems, and solutions they are facing. In the coming months the Crowdsortium will continue to drive forward, providing a strong influence in the crowdsourcing industry.
The Crowdsortium is a group of crowdsourcing industry practitioners that have self- organized to advance the crowdsourcing industry through best practices, education, data collection and public dialog.
