INTRAPRENEUR ACADEMY KICKS OFF APRIL 13
While NewBoCo is known for entrepreneurship, we’d like to introduce you to a different type of idea creator: an Intrapreneur. Intrapreneurs embody an innovative mindset and entrepreneurial spirit while working inside an established company to drive meaningful change.
We are launching a new training program to identify and support intrapreneurs. This year-long academy for cross-functional teams will include trainings, events, tours, and guest speakers through themed quarterly opportunities.
We are excited that 6 local organizations are sending teams through our inaugural cohort. If you’d like to learn more, or discuss how academy can help infuse innovation in your organization and accomplish your objectives for the coming year, please email Mandy Webber or complete the form below. Depending on interest, we may open another cohort later this year (July or October).
Each quarter focuses on a different innovation competency: Agile, Methods, Culture, and Strategy.
I want to be a local leader and support my organization’s intrapreneurs:
In order for innovation to be repeatable and sustainable, companies need to build a culture that embraces experimentation and rapid iteration. There are numerous resources to guide startups through this process, but the same doesn’t exist for established organizations that are larger and further along.
Shifting a large organization’s strategy and mindset to be better able to capitalize on innovative new marketplace opportunities is a huge challenge that realistically takes years and continues indefinitely. It’s far easier for a startup to become innovative simply because they’re smaller and have fewer established practices.
That’s why we’re launching Intrapreneur Academy, designed to help companies get a baseline pulse on where their efforts are today and how we can help them move the needle. We want local companies to thrive in the face of upcoming economic changes, and in order to do that, they need to learn how to be innovative.
