Post-covid19: How to build the new economy?

Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is increasingly recognised as a core priority by a growing number of institutional actors. The covid-19 economic disruption provides a unique opportunity to build a new economy that is resilient, inclusive and circular. Intrapreneurship refers to the application of entrepreneurial principles from within established organisations in order to lead innovative and purposeful change.

The Intrapreneurship Academy is a 3-month professional development programme for employees of organisations moving towards a more agile and entrepreneurial culture.

Our vision is that organisations in Geneva use innovation to respond to societal needs by transforming their employees into leaders, thereby living up to their full potential.

  • addressing an internal challenge
  • acquiring innovation capabilities
  • growing a collaborative culture
