Crowdfunding is growing fast and we believe it offers us a validated window into the ideas and trends that will shape specific markets in the future. As the perfect tool for entrepreneurial challengers to share, test and fund their ideas by appealing to early adopters, Brand Genetics will show how analysing crowdfunding sites like KickStarter, Indiegogo, Crowdfunder can help businesses spot trends, insights and opportunities based on the real behaviour of these key consumers. In this short presentation we will share our rationale and thinking on the potential of ‘Crowdsight’ and explore a specific case study looking from the world of coffee.
