Chooses InCrowd for

The Convenience: “It’s the ability to do some of this work on-demand and in small time increments.”

Passion Project

GRACE: Global Resource for Advancing Cancer Education

Sharing Insights

“I hope that my input will make a difference. For instance, convey to the pharma companies that there is no perceptible difference in the clinical utility of various checkpoint inhibitors, and that it would be wise for them to be sensitive to cost considerations. And in a world where we consider these strokes to be fungible choices with no distinctions among them, I would love for them to listen to what I say.”

Key Benefits

“I just consider [InCrowd] a very efficient, innocuous way to earn money for a five or ten-minute commitment.”

  • It’s on-demand rather than having to schedule it in advance
  • Questions are direct and understandable
  • Microsurveys are not repetitive
  • Multiple financial reward options

How It Compares

To Consulting

“This is just so much more nimble than that. That’s the appeal. It’s so real time. It’s something you could do on your phone if you wanted to.”

To Other Survey Options

“[Others] are incredibly long and boring. They’re nondescript, non-informative, and tedious. With InCrowd, the fact that you only have three or four screens rather than 50 is easier to do for me.”
