2,942 crowdsourcing and crowdfunding sites
In today's Wall Street Journal, a story by Angus Loten on the growth of crowdsourcing cites the report, in particular the 75 percent increase in revenues for crowdsourcing providers seen in 2011. Here's a brief excerpt from the WSJ story that refers to today's report:
Start-ups and small firms accounted for more than 60% of the sector's total revenue last year, the report found.
The report, to be released Tuesday, is based on data from 32 crowdsourcing firms between 2009 and 2011.
The number of crowdsourcing workers has grown by more 100% each year, reaching 6.3 million last year, it says.
