Lots of ideas but little money – a typical situation for many startups. A concept that promises solutions is crowdsourcing.
And indeed: Drawing on external stakeholders to support your business activities has the potential to deliver fast results and produce interesting ideas.
Debitoor uses crowdsourcing too**
The Feedback Forum and open API for the development of external apps are good examples of how Debitoor uses crowdsourcing.
It is extremely important for us to know your wishes and develop Debitoor around them. That way we want to offer the best online invoicing and accounting software for SMEs.
Crowdsourcing can be used in many ways**
Besides generating ideas and programming apps, crowdsourcing can achieve a whole number of different goals. Startups can for example raise capital through crowdfunding. Specialised websites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo can help. Software developers love using crowdtesting to uncover bugs.
Even missing planes are searched for using crowdsourcing these days, as the eerie example of flight MH370 shows.
Have you made experiences with crowdsourcing? We'd be happy to hear your comments!
