The Crowd Capital Indicator shows pledges from the crowd, i.e. social capital or crowd capital. Everyone pledges what he/she can provide to help the community.
We hope that the indicator and its communication activates our ability to react and adapt!
You have certainly read about pledges on the news portals or social media. What do we show in our Crowd Capital Indicator? It might be a free online museum tour, laptops to underprivileged children, discounts on commissions, free use of a service or even an educational application – we include the value of all these pledges in our Crowd Capital Indicator.
How do we measure the pledges?
- hu continuously builds a database based on the news.
- It validates, assesses and estimates the collected information. In the meanwhile, we contact the pledger with the aim of database reconciliation.
- Anyone can submit his/her pledges or others’ through our online form.
We analyse, publish and communicate the results. We improve our methodology constantly.
