Intrapreneurs are Value Creators
Intrapreneurs are entrepreneurs working within an organization to solve problems and/or create new businesses. In this process, they focus on creating sustainable value for their organization and its customers. This requires these individuals to challenge the status quo, be proactive, think out of the box, and lead the change.
In this masterclass, Gaurav will share his intrapreneurial journey with case-studies from multi-billion to multi-million dollar organizations. He will also cover practical insights on traits that set intrapreneurs apart from the crowd.
