What we're about

Corporate Entrepreneurs work within established organisations to launch new ideas, products, services or even businesses and ventures. While entrepreneurs build start-ups, corporate entrepreneurs transform their ideas into impactful initiatives that contribute to the continued success of their company, and develop a reputation for sought after leaders able to execute innovation at scale.

This is a group for all the Corporate Entrepreneurs out there; for anyone who has ever suggested entrepreneurial ideas or approaches that went "against-the-grain", feeling frustrated due to the lack of entrepreneurial culture and slow pace of work, and the “this is not the way we do things here” status quo.

We want to recognise, develop and nurture these exceptional individuals. We want to help organisations and corporate entrepreneurs alike to network, learn, foster innovation and share best practices by bringing together corporate entrepreneurs and industry influencers to drive innovation across all sectors.
