What Is Intrapreneurship?

Enabling change, innovation and solutions.

Intrapreneurship is revolutionising the way many organisations do business and is already a feature of leading companies as Gore, Google and 3M. 

Indeed, it is something we want to bring to mission-driven organisations. The status quo for many organisations is not sustainable, with many challenges ahead, including prolonged pressure on income levels. The Lens believes that developing the skills, mind-set and culture that promotes innovation and engages the workforce in service design will be a feature of those who flourish in the future and that is what we want to encourage in your organisation.

The Lens founder and CEO, Steve McCreadie, delivered a highly anticipated talk at TEDxGlasgow 2016 which describes what intrapreneurship is and why we need it. 

In·tra·pre·neur·ship (n) 1) Successful adaptation of entrepreneurial attitudes and strategies inside of a bureaucratic organisation. 2) Implementation of start-up practices within a large organisation, producing valued innovation.

 “Intrapreneurs can transform an organization more quickly and effectively than others because they are self motivated freethinkers, masters at navigating around bureaucratic and political inertia.”


Creating a culture of intrapreneurship will need collaboration and shared leadership. Find out how you can support these exciting developments.
