Intrapreneurship has sparked excitement among young professionals who are looking for a new path. One that is more creative, challenging and rewarding. Being an Intrapreneur is now seen as a viable career choice for many. That said….
Many organizations are talking about Intrapreneurship but few are actually doing anything about it. The challenge for Intrapreneurs is finding an organization that fully embraces and supports Intrapreneurship. A place where being an Intrapreneur is an asset not a liability.

Intrapreneurs are a hidden talent – you just need to find them. Finding one is not as simple as looking inside your innovation group or at your high potentials or your extroverts. They can be anywhere. They can be anyone. You need to know what you are looking for.
The challenge for organizations is finding professionals who are true Intrapreneurs. The challenge for you is convincing them that you are an Intrapreneur. Intrapreneurs possess a set of competencies that distinguish them from more traditional employees. They have a different mindset; they think, act and make decisions differently.
