Based on their attendance at the Business Innovation Factory's annual summit, Ken Gordon, @quickmuse, and Adam Hansen, @adhansen, have chosen this subject and are hosting this week's #innochat. Their framing post follows.

When we attended #BIF2017, we met a lot of people who were (a) interested in innovation; and (b) struggling to make a living doing innovation work. What do you think about this? You'd imagine that innovation people would be highly valued by organizations (either they'd want to employ them or hire them to do freelance work). Does the fact of such professional struggling surprise you, #innochat?
