Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)

A year ago, in Haifa, I gave a quick overview on how companies could help improve Wikipedia. Few weeks after Wikimania I published a study about the quality of the CAC40 companies articles on the french Wikipedia, I also actually worked with some of those companies on how they could dive into Wikipedia.

This presentation aim to show how companies are the new GLAM and will be able to support our mission by provinding great quality contents.
