How do you define innovation? Here’s what we’ve heard on "Innovation Hub":

"These innovators they don’t really go into business school classrooms... They’re learning on the street, really quickly, and iterating really quickly from what they learned and adjusting and revising."
- Nancy Koehn, Harvard Business School
"There's this mystique about successful people that they never fail, but in fact they fail a lot. They just try more stuff."
Tom Kelley, IDEO
"We have this new economy. I call it the connection economy, where value is not created by mass production. But value is created by being weird, by going to the edges, by innovating."
Seth Godin, author and former Yahoo! VP

Innovation Hub features today's most creative thinkers - from authors to researchers to business leaders. It explores new avenues in education, science, medicine, transportation, and more.
