Intrapreneurship is the activity of creating something new while acting as an entrepreneur, but within the broad aegis of a company. It is necessary to forge business innovations. Such intrapreneurship can lead to a new department or section to be created, while at times, a wholesale new subsidiary could spin off. Gmail from Google’s stables and the concept of the “like” button on Facebook, both emerged out of such tinkering. It is all about value- creation, though it need not be small in scale.
