Crowdsourcing is developing rapidly across the world, and many companies are looking at Latin America as an important region to explore.
This makes sense – internet penetration rates in Latin America are growing, programs like ‘Start-Up Chile’ are encouraging entrepreneurship in the region, and the countries are (mostly) bound by a single language, meaning there is potential for big growth.
Those who are interested in how crowdsourcing is growing within Latin America should check out the conference taking place in Sao Paulo on July 23rd and 24th. ‘Conferencia Crowdsourcing’ will examine some of the most recent developments in the world of crowdsourcing, crowdfunding, and co-creation, and how they may be applied to the region.
This is the third year the conference is taking place. The agenda, like in years past, explores a wide range of subjects; a few of the topics to be discussed include how large enterprises can use crowdfunding, “innovating innovation,” and collaborative learning, said Marina Miranda of Mutopo, the company putting together the conference.
Some of the more prominent attendees include Don Tapscott, author of ‘Wikinomics,’ Francois Petavy, CEO of eYeka, and the scientist Miguel Nicolelis; representatives from companies like LEGO, IBM, and Microsoft will also be in attendance.
The conference has grown steadily over the past few years, and Miranda said she expects roughly 500 attendees to come to this month’s conference. Make sure to check out the conference's site for more information if you plan to attend.
