Crowdsourcing Week (CSW) announces the CSW Summit in Brussels on June 5-6, 2014, the first in a series of global summits planned for 2014. The two-day summit with BNP Paribas Fortis as a premier partner will be the first of its kind in Brussels. The event will connect an expanding crowdsourcing community in Belgium to European and global innovators in crowdsourcing and open innovation.

Building on CSW’s conference 2014 theme, "Crowd Impact: Empowering Transformation”, the CSW Summit Brussels will explore the ways crowd tactics, tools and customer-led innovation is transforming businesses, marketing, government, finance and more.

“We are thrilled and honoured to partner with BNP Paribas Fortis to bring our summit to Brussels and forge connections between private and public sectors and the emerging crowd economy”, says Epi Ludvik Nekaj, CEO and founder of Crowdsourcing Week. The two-day conference will feature talks, panel discussions and interactive sessions led by experts in crowd innovation and finance including Darren Westlake (CEO at Crowdcube), Sean Moffitt (Managing Director at Wikibrands), Wim Soens (Director of Innovation, Research & Development at CogniStreamer), Shelley Kuipers (CEO and founder of Chaordix) and many other pioneers.

In a time of unprecedented connectivity, organizations, governments, and billion-dollar industries are embracing the crowd. This new business environment is all about efficiency, openness, and shared value.

“BNP Paribas Fortis believes that banks have an important role to play in the emerging open & collaborative economy, and it is looking at extending its internal innovation and co-creation initiatives towards customers and business partners”, says Yvan De Cock, Head of Corporate & Public Bank Belgium of BNP Paribas Fortis.

The CSW Summit Brussels will introduce business leaders to crowd-powered tools that will help them accelerate innovation and will take place at the renowned innovation hub, Living Tomorrow in Brussels.
