Corporate entrepreneurs are individuals inside of existing organizations that build new businesses, products, services or processes that create value and generate new revenue growth.
Corporate entrepreneurs possess a unique combination of competencies that set them apart from others. They are independent thinkers who are willing to challenge the status quo. They deal effectively with ambiguity and uncertainty while successfully navigating organizational obstacles that get in their way.
More importantly they provide the entrepreneurial leadership needed to move their companies forward into the future.
