Intrapreneurs are the beating heart of forward-thinking organisations and transformations.

After working with clients across a range of industries, we agree that the need for strategic transformation and innovation has never been more pressing, yet we’ve also seen that most organisations lack the crucial entrepreneurial capabilities and culture required for successful transformation.

Now, during times of fundamental change, organisations have to pay attention to – and empower, Intrapreneurs.

At Studio Zao we create systems to allow entrepreneurial individuals within organisations — or Intrapreneurs — to drive and execute innovation and transformative initiatives. That’s why we have collected all of our learnings and insights in 45 cohesive pages that explore how to identify, empower and unleash the potential of Intrapreneurs as key drivers of change from within.

We hope you enjoy it, and please feel free to get in touch should it spark any questions or ideas.

What Is An Intrapreneur?

An Intrapreneur is an entrepreneurially-talented individual working within an organisation who uses creative problem-solving skills to capture value-generating opportunities — developing ambitious ideas into scalable solutions or market propositions that drive progress for their organisations and society.
