    Event description

    In today’s rapidly evolving world, organisations big and small are being challenged to innovate or risk a blockbuster style demise. With increasing pressure on businesses across every industry to think differently, employers are working hard to cultivate intrapreneurial skills within their teams.

    While we often hear headlines about entrepreneurs working to build innovative startups set to change the world, what we’re finding is that there is also a growing population of intrapreneurs in the workforce that are taking an entrepreneurial approach to designing new products, strategies, and ways of working within existing organisations.

    For many young people, the concept of intrapreneurship is much more appealing than entrepreneurship as they consider their pathways after school. An intrapreneurial pathway provides young people entering the workforce with the security of a job with an existing organisation, an established team to work with, an existing brand, product, and customer base, and often the ability to scale their ideas quickly if they find success in the role.

    In the words of Virgin Group founder Richard Branson, “While it's true that every company needs an entrepreneur to get it underway, healthy growth requires a smattering of intrapreneurs who drive new projects and explore new and unexpected directions for business development.”

    So, for educators looking to equip their young people with the skills and capabilities to thrive in an ever changing future of work, how can we nurture the next generation of intrapreneurs in our classrooms?

    Our Building Entrepreneurial Innovators webinar will see a panel of West Australian intrapreneurs coming together to share their experiences in the industry, as well as their advice for educators looking to equip their young people with the intrapreneurial skills required to thrive in our ever changing future of work.
