Daiana Fobian Nielsen - Participation Researcher
Daiana was so interested in how global firms are shifting to more open and collaborative innovation models she became a Co-Founder of the Co-Founder of the organization Danish Crowdsourcing. This is what they call passion. It was a fairly significant shift from her previous work as a real estate broker but directly in line with her focus on delivering real results for her clients, be they individuals in the market for a new place to live or organizations looking to innovate more effectively. Always curious about the human condition, Daiana’s willing to trade you cake for your life story. Or at least a cup of coffee.

What We're Reading
‘The Hidden Life of Trees’ by Peter Wohlleben
Peter Wohlleben observes how trees like to grow in natural forests. We learn about how they communicate with each other through their roots (the ‘wood wide web’), and how ‘mother trees’ deliberately slow the development of their progeny so they don’t grow too quickly. We discover that these young plants ultimately develop stronger trunks and root systems this way which in time help guarantee a long life.

We're in search of Participation Strategists in the UK, Europe and Canada
At Better Ventures, we bring participation-based business models to life for some of the world’s biggest (and most loved) brands. It’s an exciting journey — and a humbling one — especially as we participate in the great disruption that is recreating how businesses operate around the world. The changes we’re seeing are driven by matters of commerce, sure, but also the need for human connection in a fragmented world. These things are increasingly inseparable. And while these changes are being accelerated by our increasingly technology-connected lives they are also a product of the failures of outdated methods, business models and assumptions.
