What crazy things can you do in Brazil with the crowd?
Crowdfunding, Distributed Knowledge

On Monday, in a packed convention hall in Sao Paulo, Brazil, over three hundred practitioners, eager entrepreneurs, and curious bystanders’, watched, listened and scribbled intensely as the 1st International Conference on Crowdsourcing, Communities and Co-creation got underway. The full agenda accommodated a line-up of crowdsourcing professionals who presented their business models, provided real-world examples and shared insights into the must-knows and the dos and don’ts of crowdsourcing. 

The conference itself was the idea of Shaun Abrahamson and Marina Miranda from Mutopo when a few months ago, following calls for assistance and participation, Marina’s large network of connections in Brazil, the US and in Europe started to quickly produce: sponsors, a venue, speakers and then ticket sales.

Crowdsourcing and crowdfunding have been increasingly on the agenda in Brazil over the last twelve months and this was Brazil’s first chance to gather in one place to meet face-to-face to look for the answers to the one question that appeared to capture it all -- the central issue -- “what crazy things can you do in Brazil with the crowd?” As Shaun Abrahamson opened the conference he quote Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, “While the last five years have been about getting connected, the next 5 years are going to be about all the crazy things you can do now that all those people are connected”. There seems to be a lot of crazy things you can do, for sure!

Crowdsourcing: Improving the Quality of Scientific Data through Social Networking
Crowdfunding World Record
Crowdfunding

In a really exciting first in the world of crowdfunding, the Rushmore Group which runs private members’ clubs in London has become the first business ever to raise more than £1m using a crowdfunding platform. Based in the UK, Crowdcube is one of the first business finance crowdfunding platforms for businesses to raise equity finance. Crowdcube launched in 2010 as the “next generation of business investment” and offers a new way to fund start-ups and business expansion by providing budding entrepreneurs a platform to connect with ordinary people and raise venture capital.  

Selecting Crowdcube for its fundraising platform, Jonathan Downey, founder and owner of the Rushmore Group, opted to use the crowdfunding model over other methods for raising capital needed to expand the business. Sensationally, the Group raised the money in the space of four weeks from 143 investors.
