"It’s impressive to see how much the crowdsourcing industry has evolved in only one year. Last year was about the potential of the business model. As our businesses have all matured, we now know we have something solid to build on and the discussion focused on lessons learned and future growth. Scars were shown and the war stories behind them were told. At the Symposium we found the intersection between transparency and learning," said Niel Robertson, CEO of Trada, and co-founder of Crowdsortium.
"Crowdsortium Symposium was by far the most useful crowdsourcing event we've ever attended. It was amazing to be able to learn from the titans and pioneers of the crowdsourcing industry in such a welcoming and honest arena. Kudos to Brittany and team for an awesome event!" said Alex Torrenegra, CEO of VoiceBunny
