If crowdsourcing can be used to alert drivers to traffic delays as soon as they happen (Waze), help you pick a restaurant for dinner (Yelp), and launch and finance new companies (Crowdfunding), consider the power of a diverse crowd for making predictions about the future.
Organizations as varied as the U.S. and European Intelligence Communities, global news organizations, investment banks, biopharmaceutical companies, and large manufacturers have used Cultivate Labs’ technology solutions to tap the collective intelligence of their employees, partners, and external networks to make predictions they then use to guide key strategic and operational decisions.
