2015, the Year of the Crowd?

CrowdCompanies founder Jeremy Owyang has been tracking the rise of the now $8BN sharing economy for almost a decade. He recently reposted their illustrated deck from LeWeb that explains how 2015 is the Year of the Crowd. It shows how crowd-based business models have spread to many new verticals like healthcare, logistics, enterprise/corporate, utilities, cities and education. It also shows how funding and disruptions to traditional business are on the rise and how large corporations are adopting by leaning into this movement. Give it a quick read, its a great overview of a sector on the move. View the presentation.
