Annotation: Innovation hubs are meta-organizations which facilitate informal idea exchanges with the intent to spurn discoveries and solve problems. The “hub” model serves to describe the platform as a non-hierarchical community of idea-sharing with separate individuals, organizations, or communities representing the spokes.
