March 17, 2017. Shanghai – CEIBS faculty visited the flagship office of Naked Hub, the fast-growing creative co-working space which is located in Shanghai’s Xintiandi District today. Their visit began with a tour of the four-story space. Then Naked Hub Managing Director Mr. Paul Hu (GEMBA2015) and its Chief Innovation Officer Mr. Dominic Penaloza introduced the company’s technology and business model. The group was also joined by three members of the offline and online community the company calls “Hubbers” who communicate frequently with each other through the company’s app. The Hubbers, two startups (Seeder and Seedlink) and the AB In-Bev Disruptive Growth Organization, shared their business ideas with the CEIBS faculty.

In discussions during the visit, Associate Professor of Management Daniel Han Ming Chng asked about how Naked Hub differentiates its community. Associate Dean (Europe) and Professor of Management Katherine Xin discussed incentive mechanisms for cross functional cooperation with Mr. Hu. At the conclusion of the visit Mr. Hu thanked the faculty for their positive suggestions and said he looked forward to more discussions with them in the future.
