The Intrapreneurship Academy

Faced with unprecedented economic, social and public health challenges, corporations and organisations need to rethink their business models and adopt more resilient systems.

The Intrapreneurship Academy is a unique cross-industry professional development programme for young professionals and leaders wanting to lead change towards a more agile, entrepreneurial and purposeful culture. Based on 4 key pillars: Innovation, Collaboration, Leadership and Enterprise, the programme offers participants the opportunity to practice their learnings through workshops and real-life challenges.

What will you learn?

At the end of this learning journey, participants will be able to understand megatrends and approaches such as Circular Economy, Theory-U, Design Thinking and Leading Beyond Authority, will have developed 3 prototypes and will be able to impact their organisations and corporations with concrete and innovative solutions.

What is intrapreneurship?

Intrapreneurship refers to the application of entrepreneurial principles within established organisations in order to lead innovative and purposeful change, and develop new business models and working systems. Our vision is that organisations leverage their full potential by using innovation to respond to societal needs, transforming their employees into intrapreneurial leaders and connecting to a wider community of changemakers that are paving the way for the new economy.

Who is it for?

The Intrapreneurship Academy is for high-potential young professionals and leaders within the corporate or non-profit sectors wanting to learn innovation methodologies to harness their untapped potential, cultivate resilience and foster creativity.
