There is a rising desire for innovation and growth from more and more companies to build physical spaces to nurture new ideas, solve challenges and prototype solutions: We call these Innovation Hubs. Good examples include IKEA’s Space10, Nike’s House of Innovation or Starbuck’s Beta Lab.
So how do Innovation Hubs need to be designed to foster ideation and interaction? What value do they provide to their companies? And how can the Innovation Hub be improved to strengthen innovation and ideation in the future?
For this 2nd panel talk, we invited the creative minds behind Innovation Hubs from companies such as Daimler and Volkswagen. We will touch on topics such as design, impact and best practices and what the Innovation Hub of the future will look like.
Join us for an exciting conversation with some of Germany’s leading Innovation Hubs!
