San Francisco, CA – December 10, 2013 – Today at the largest internet conference in Europe, LeWeb, Jeremiah Owyang, formerly of the Altimeter Group, publicly announced the formation of his newest endeavor, Crowd Companies. The primary focus of Crowd Companies is a brand council that provides peer to peer knowledge, expert education from third parties and access to an innovation network of startups. The council will focus on the Collaborative Economy Movement, which includes the sharing economy, maker movement, crowdfunding, alternative currency and more. As people become empowered to get what they need from sharing services, 3D printing, and crowdfunding, what role do companies play in this process? Jeremiah’s brand council has been established specifically to answer these questions and provide creative and economically feasible solutions.
Jeremiah and Crowd Companies have made a concerted effort to line up high profile brands eager to join the collaborative economy movement. Contracts are currently in place with GE, The Home Depot, Whole Foods, Intel, Hyatt, Ford, Western Union, Adobe, Nestle and Verizon for a total of 20 large corporations. Demonstrating the support of major players across a variety of markets is integral to both the future of Crowd Companies and the evolving business model that the collaborative economy represents.
Jeremiah’s brand council will offer member-to-member council calls, an online community and organize real world events. Additionally, Crowd Companies centralizes the market experts, authors and thought leaders around the council, saving valuable time. Corporate members can quickly tap the innovation network, a contingent of hand selected startups that want to partner with large corporations.
Over the last decade, Jeremiah has led many corporations to the first phase of democratization, social media. Armed with this knowledge and strong tech roots, Crowd Companies will lead the nascent collaborative economy into a more mainstream movement. A new industry has sprung up, dictated entirely by people: the new solutions and perspectives provided by Crowd Companies are essential to large companies navigating their way through this new movement.
About Crowd Companies Crowd Companies exists to be a catalyst for change at large companies. We invite senior executives, innovators, product managers, marketers, operations leaders, sustainability leaders, social business strategists and others to apply.
