Intrapreneurship and venture building

Why venture building is key to successful intrapreneurship

Discover why venture building is vital to the success of your intrapreneurship program, plus how to be future-ready by combining the two approaches to bring radical ideas to life.

What is it about?

Staying innovative and ahead of the competition is an ever-present challenge for any business. Over the last decade, we've seen first-hand how intrapreneurship can be a powerful tool for overcoming this challenge by enabling employees to create new business ideas and solutions. However, there has been a significant development in recent years: for intrapreneurship to be truly impactful, it must be combined with venture building. This is particularly true for more radical innovations. In our latest guide, we've compiled all of our experience and learnings from creating some of Europe's biggest intrapreneurship programs with DHL, Miele and TenneT to help you go from generating ideas to launching successful ventures and even setting up your own corporate venture builder.
