This research note aims at presenting a new concept: the 'knowledge angels', i.e., the specific individuals acting within Knowledge-Intensive Business Services (KIBS) who are potentially explaining the innovativeness of this type of firm. So far, the individual motivations and specific knowledge value-added of the key actors inside KIBS are not the object of targeted investigations. The working hypotheses that are related to the existence and possible detection of knowledge angels are explored.
