1. Introduction

12% of survey complete.
Dear enlightened business leader of the crowd economy,

Attached is our 2nd annual Global Crowdsourcing survey conducted by CSW2, Wikibrands and Crowdsourcing Week.

The survey is important to us. It provides a global pulse check for shifts in your attitudes, adoption and perceptions in the emerging areas of crowd economy. And it has improved on last year's survey based on your insights! 

Note: within the 20 questions attached, we use crowdsourcing, crowdfunding, collaboration, the crowd economy, sharing economy, co-creation and other terms alternatively to describe the technology-aided fan-, customer-, employee-, citizen- and community-based efforts that drive value for private, public and not-for-profit organizations.

We'd love your help and we also recognize this investment is a two-way avenue. In return for filling out this survey, we are also offering the chance for:

- Two free tickets for Crowdsourcing Global Week in Singapore (April 20-24) or Crowdsourcing Europe Week In Brussels (Oct 19-23) (randomly chosen)

- an across-the-board 15% discount to our Global Crowdsourcing Week in Singapore and our regional summits (special VIP code for all completed surveys)

- one of three $150 pledges to one of the most popular Kickstarter or Indiegogo projects (as chosen by us for the best survey answers) 

- one of six books: Crowdfunding: the Next Big Thing, It's a Shareable Life: A Practical Guide on Sharing, or Building Open Source Hardware: DIY Manufacturing for Hackers and Makers (randomly drawn)

- A preview copy of the survey's topline results before anyone else and an opportunity to contribute to our crowd thought leadership (to all respondents)

We look forward to hearing your insights and feel free to connect on our CSW events, the research report or other developments, collaborations and services by contacting us directly.
