Startup yourself, disrupt your company.

In today’s era of exponential change, the leadership capacity of an individual is increasingly essential to an institution’s dexterity, ability to innovate and remain relevant into the future. The pitfalls of ignoring the need for these skills leads to loss of opportunity and competitiveness, along with increased redundancy and inefficiency. Intrapreneurship is a methodology for crafting and executing low-cost, high-impact strategies to accelerate systemic change within institutions.  Entrepreneurial employees are able to take advantage of megatrends such as the rise of exponential technologies, the science behind productive workplaces, globalization, human-centered design and many others – to build organizational capacity and accelerate new ventures.
