Start-Up Key Terms to Know

  • Crowdsourcing is distributed problem solving. By distributing tasks to a large group of people, you are able to mine collective intelligence, assess quality and process work in parallel.*
  • Crowdfunding describes the collective effort of individuals who network and pool their resources, usually via the Internet, to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations. Crowdfunding is used in support of a wide variety of activities, including disaster relief, citizen journalism, support of artists by fans, political campaigns, startup company funding, movie or free software development, and scientific research.**
  • Born-global companies are business organizations that, from inception, seek to derive significant competitive advantage from the use of resources and the sale of outputs in multiple countries.***
