Great success for the first CrowdDialog Europe in Helsinki

On August 27th, 2015, the Who’s Who of the international crowdfunding- and crowdinnovation-industry met at the first CrowdDialog Europe at the Astoria Sali in Helsinki to discuss the future of the industry. In addition to the European delegations, delegates from Japan, Malaysia, Israel, Canada and the United States had come to Finland to attend the conference.

Not only the economy, also politicians acknowledge a high priority of the topic. This is demonstrated by the support of EU Commissioner Günther Oettinger, who pointed out in his video message to the participants, that the existing banking system faces massive upheaval through the new technologies and innovations.

Of the same opinion is also the French Secretary of State for Digital Affairs, Axelle Lamaire. The long-standing advocate of net neutrality considers crowd-based innovation and upheaval processes as key factors for success in a business world, that is increasingly dominated by digital transformation.

“The premiere of the CrowdDialog Europe was a great success. Interesting guests, stimulating discussions and, of course, the lively exchange between the participants made the conference an unforgettable experience for all involved. Already, we have received the feedback that many participants want to be there again next year,” says initiator Michael Gebert and adds: “Where the second CrowdDialog Europe will take place in the coming year, is not yet known. But already six countries andcities applied to be hosts next year. Which city we will decide upon, will be announced at the CrowdDialog Munich on 27th November 2015”.
