Crises call for Intrapreneurs

In a world fraught with change and disruptions, organisations need internal entrepreneurial leaders, or intrapreneurs, more than ever.

An intrapreneur is an employee who thinks and acts like an entrepreneur within an established business. They apply problem-solving, creativity, communication skills and critical thinking to deal with ambiguity and to become agents of change and growth for their employer.

Combining a team of strategists, product experts, designers and experienced intrapreneurs, we bring the insight and expertise needed by people at the heart of your organisation to uncover and realise growth solutions.

We are guided by a mission and set of values that are focussed on intrapreneurship as a driver of growth and resilience.

Why we are different

Intrapreneurship is our focus

We specialise in shaping innovation from a capability held by a few into one being core to the entire organisation.

We blend learning with practice

We help our clients acquire intrapreneurial skills through action, by applying the right techniques to real-life customer challenges.

We execute solutions

We measure our success by the impact your own intrapreneurs have made for the organisation.

Our people

We are strategists, designers, coaches, entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs.
We treasure diversity in people and in thinking.

What our clients say

Studio Zao 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 three propositions going forward into pilots and a number of entrepreneurial talents recognised in the business.

“Working with Studio Zao was a real pleasure. Not only do they bring diverse and innovative strategic thinking but they also truly partnered with us, sharing insights and taking on feedback to co create a great output. They also understand the importance of talent together with innovation.”

Studio Zao worked with us all the way through a complex journey involving academia, large and small business, running two successful workshops and hacks. This has given us a highly engaged network to back our bid for further UK Innovate funding.

“We hosted the most awesome global webinar with Studio Zao on “The Power of Intrapreneurship and Innovation” and it was an exciting journey of an intrapreneur, with practical tools and ideas, inspiring stories and an amazing passion for innovation.”
