As technology is transforming how society addresses increasingly complex problems, social media has the potential to add a new way of thinking to catalyze systemic change in fields such as Real Estate. In this panel we will explore how an interdisciplinary approach integrates crowdfunding, crowdsourcing, innovation, design, and business thinking among other fields, and puts human issues at the core to reframe problems and their solutions.An intriguing examination of how social media shapes our lives, our society, and our culture, cutting-edge research from behavioral science, technology and economics shows how the crowd can collaborate for the collective good.Once we start thinking in terms of “the Crowd” and the strategies it imposes, the problems of modern life come into sharper focus. Social Media provides a new way of understanding the huge impact of the crowd, but also how individuals and organizations can better manage scale for greater satisfaction and success.In this session, world renowned designers, researchers and strategists will share how they are shaping new innovative approaches to address some of the most pressing economic challenges of our time, aiming to create rapid, large-scale, sustainable transformation.
This panel discussion will cover the definition of crowdsourcing and crowdfunding, what it is and what it means to the world at large, its impact in real estate, and the power of the crowd with ideas, inspiration, financial development, access to markets and exploration.
