Crowdsourcing has become a popular way to engage users - and most of all customers - into companies' business processes worldwide. But how is the situation in Germany? In 2011 the first European crowdsourcing conference, the "CrowdConvention" was held in Berlin - a clear indication for the growing popularity of crowdsourcing. Nevertheless, little is known about how the success of crowdsourcing projects is determined by the characteristics of specific national markets. The paper presents a study of 71 crowdsourcing projects, that are currently running in Germany (or have been running in 2011 and 2012) and pay special attention to such projects that are directly related to innovation management.
