Stop talking about Intrapreneurship : Implement it !

Intrapreneurship refers to a framework where employees with ideas and entrepreneurial skills are granted a certain level of autonomy to develop projects of their own in a controlled and safe environment.

Corporations encouraging intrapreneurship become more innovative, agile and reactive, like start-ups. However, when it comes to implementing intrapreneurial projects, they face a number of challenges and pitfalls including conflicts with business demands, time management and prioritization, developing risk vs reward strategies and more.

Create the right framework to unleash the entrepreneurial potential of your employees and to boost innovation from within

The Intrapreneurship Conference aims to provide participants with the tools they need to create efficient platforms supporting intrapreneurial initiatives. In addition to practical workshops delivered by a group of international Intrapreneurship experts, the 3 days event will feature an open day organised in partnership with CSR Europe, Ashoka and BMW Foundation where inspiring keynotes and case studies will be presented and the European Social Intrapreneurship Program will be launched.

Our experts will focus on how to avoid the obstacles intrapreneurs face and how to deliver valuable results both for the company and for the intrapreneurs.

Some of the Practical issues that will be covered include:

  • Assessing the corporate culture and your company readiness for Intrapreneurship
  • Helping intrapreneurs navigate through corporate politics and resolve potential office place challenges
  • Assembling a team of mentors to support intrapreneurs
  • Organizing Bootcamps designed to generate intrapreneurial projects
  • Tutorials on establishing a corporate incubator
  • Which rewarding system to adopt
  • Resolving valuation issues and more.


We are firm believers that collaboration is an important part of the learning process. We therefore created various networking moments to intentionally encourage interactions and sharing during participatory workshops and networking social events, in order to complement the solid agenda of workshops and keynotes we have put together. Read more about these on the program page.
