Organisations need internal entrepreneurial capabilities and culture.

As the world is changing faster than ever, organisations must transform in order to win and thrive. Successful transformations are driven by internal talent, who know the business, stakeholders and customers better than anyone else.
We call them “Intrapreneurs”, the workforce of the future.

Organisations often struggle to develop, activate and incentivise entrepreneurial talent — exacerbated by internal environments that stifle and reject entrepreneurial behaviours, leading to failed transformation and innovation.

Studio Zao is a London-headquartered innovation studio who work with global organisations to empower Intrapreneurs, the entrepreneurially-talented individuals who drive change from within.

Entrepreneurial Capability Development Framework Studio Zao

We unlock and harness Intrapreneurial talent to enable strategic transformation.

We design and implement systems that empower Intrapreneurs and embed Intrapreneurial capabilities to be long-lasting, creating environments that enable them to flourish.

It’s important that leaders in organisations are aligned on the transformation agenda, with an understanding of current Intrapreneurial capability levels, while Intrapreneurial talent is sufficiently upskilled and empowered to channel their capabilities towards solving key business challenges and capturing new growth opportunities. Crucially, these capabilities need to become embedded — part of the organisation’s DNA and culture.

“Studio Zao helped us identify consumer problems to solve in order to design and deliver a rapid innovation sprint followed by venture coaching 9 teams. They took us through a strategic and immersive venture building process. It was insightful to see how the teams’ propositions transformed through customer engagement and validation, with 3 propositions going forward into pilots and a number of entrepreneurial talents recognised in the business.”
