Our workshop is directed towards all those who’d like to know more about the phenomenon of crowdfunding, especially – crowdfunding campaigns and platforms that aims for the common good.

WE the CROWD is Poland’s first think-and-do tank devoted to the research and development of what they like to call “social” or “crowd-based ” solutions, namely: crowdfunding, crowdsourcing, open innovation and the sharing economy. Marcin Giełzak and Bartosz Filip Malinowski, the founders of WE the CROWD are the authors of “Crowdfunding”, the first practical manual on how to plan and execute a crowdfunding campaign published in Poland. They’re also the organizers of CROWDparty, a once-a-year event devoted entirely to crowdfunding and crowdsourcing. Their knowledge of crowd-based solutions and technologies had allowed them to take part in the establishment of several startup projects, most notably – ShareHire, a social recruitment platform and CROWDthinks, a crowdsourced creative agency.

Workshop is led by Marcin Giełzak and Bartosz Filip Malinowski, WE the CROWD,
