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. Contrary to the usual opinion, intrapreneurship isn’t associated solely with startups. Intrapreneurs face less risk, as they are not starting anything right from scratch, nor are they utilizing their own money. In order to introduce intrapreneurship to one’s company, one may start off with a hackathon. An Idea Fair is another such good idea. Two more would be the “Innovation Time”, like at Google and the Sandbox Fund.

En number of startups are now being opened up, many of which even end up flourishing. This drive is mainly due to the nature of the digital economy, but also due to the growing disillusionment with the corporate lifestyle. This corporate world is still working under age- old hierarchical models, with little scope for creativity or flexibility. Talent management practices are almost non- existent in some places. For upcoming entrepreneurs, there are certain dos and don’ts they need to keep in mind. For a start, they need to experiment, before finalizing on any plan. Their financial plan needs to be realistic. A concrete plan needs to be put in place to ensure timely cash flow. One mustn’t take up any work in panic, that will distract from the real core.
