Intrapreneurship is a relatively recent but increasingly important up and coming concept that involves using entrepreneurial thinking an behaviours as an employee for a company – an intrapreneur is someone working within a company that takes risks and shows creativity in an effort to solve a given problem with innovation. Like an entrepreneur, the intrapreneur will take risks, but within the context of their job in the company. There are many companies quietly embracing and developing this powerful advantage. Steve Jobs credited the Macintosh team as evidence of Intrapreneurship and Richard Branson believes intrapreneurs are necessary for healthy growth in any organisation.
