About the Conclave

This is the age of entrepreneurship. But there are ‘hidden’ entrepreneurs among us. They are creative employees with great ideas that can change a firm’s growth trajectory. We call them the intrapreneur.


Nurturing intrapreneurs is a powerful way for companies to innovate and grow in an increasingly complex marketplace. What hinders this? Entrenched R&D traditions that focus less on enabling breakthroughs and more on pre-empting failure. But the success of intrapreneurship requires firms to embrace the high-risk high-reward start-up culture. That raises questions.


What kind of culture can nourish the ‘intrapreneurial’ spirit? 

How can promising intrapreneurship be incentivized, monetized and scaled up?

How do we enable collaborations by creating an open innovation ecosystem, to turn ideas into ventures?

How do we leverage generational equity by bridging experience and passion, to create new pathways for success?

These and other questions were answered at the Conclave by our eminent speakers and through our Intrapreneurship study, a partnership between Unfold Consulting, Accenture, Unisys and We School.
