Technological change is causing significant disruption to existing companies. Since 2000 more than half of the S&P 500 companies have disappeared. It is becoming well understood that intrapreneurs are critically important to the long-term success of established companies.
Intrapreneurship, the concept of cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset and skill set from within an existing organisation, is enabling many large companies to create value through employee-powered innovation. Like entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs take risks in the pursuit of innovative ideas. However, in doing so, they need to navigate a complex system of existing organisational structures, processes and practices that often stifle innovation.
- What makes intrapreneurs successful?
- What are the characteristics that successful intrapreneurs share?
- How do organisations recognise and develop intrapreneurs, and how can they retain them?
- How intraprenuerial is Australia?
Join us for a lively discussion moderated by Dr Natalia Nikolova, Senior Lecturer, UTS, that will explore the characteristics of successful intrapreneurs and how they contribute to business.
