Cambrian House explains crowdsourcing

Cambrian House, the site that revolves around harnessing the power of online crowds to affect change and create business, summarized their future plans at the 22nd Annual Angel Forum at the SFU Harbour Centre today. They pointed to physical places like Manhattan as an example of a location that’s clearly a defined area for the financial industry, just as Silicon Valley is a physical hub for technology. Cambrian House wants to be that kind of hub online for business. By creating a business ecosystem through their site, they propose to take their already successful crowdsourcing methods to solve business problems by combining collaboration and commerce. They also pointed out that while Facebook is a good casual social networking platform, it isn’t conducive to business, which is where Cambrian House hopes to carve out their niche.
