Intrapreneurs

Intrapreneurs, or entrepreneurs that operate within the safety (and confines) of a larger organisation, are often the roles that seasoned entrepreneurs can be jealous of as it is seen to offer the best of both worlds. Not only do you get to fulfil your entrepreneurial ambition, but you can do so without risking your own financial and professional future.

However not only do intrapreneurs need the same mentoring as entrepreneurs, they additionally need help to understand how to operate as maverick entrepreneurs within the confines and restraints of their parent company. Larger companies tend to move slowly and methodically with layers of authorisations to allow innovation to come out.

There are a variety of methods not only to cope with the restrictions an intrapreneur faces personally but to work with the company to foster a more productive environment for the intrapreneurs within it.
