The paper analyzes the spatial concentration of crowdsourcing platforms in 11 European countries showing the inappropriateness of the varieties of capitalism approach and of the national innovation system concept. The phenomenon is more correctly understood by using the urban dimension as unit of analysis. The platforms are concentrated mainly in metropoli tan cities, rich in skilled human capital and characterized by an environment of trust in others.
Keywords: Clusters, Crowdsourcing, Varieties of Capitalism, National Innovation Systems, Urban Studies, Micro-finance
