This report focuses on the Impact Hub, a global network of social entrepreneurs which provides innovative co-creation places around the world to its members that are 'working on ideas for a radically better world'. The Impact Hub has been studied as an exemplary social network that facilitates social innovation and entrepreneurial activity. It has also been used as empirical material in research on how strategic niche management (SNM) can be applied to inform social innovation and social entrepreneurship. In this context it fits in very well towards contributing to the building of a theory on transformative social innovation, which is the overall aim of the TRANSIT project.
