What is intrapreneurship? 

Intrapreneurship refers to the idea of entrepreneurship within an existing organization. Entrepreneurship is often defined as the creation of a new business or idea that comes with great risk and great reward if successful. Intrapreneurship is considered less risky because it takes place within an established environment. However, that environment also limits the autonomy of the intrapreneur. Promoting and boosting intrapreneurship has many benefits. Not only can it contribute to business growth and revenue, it also improves employee satisfaction and retention and talent acquisition of those with an entrepreneurial mindset.


What is an internal challenge? 

An internal challenge, or internal competition, is a competition organized within a company to engage employees in finding new innovative solutions. Much like any innovation challenge, it includes clear objectives, problem statements and rewards. When done right, an internal challenge will have multiple positive impacts on the organization. Not only will engaging employees on relevant business challenges lead to accelerated crowdsourcing, development and implementation of solutions that increase business growth and revenue. It will also foster a company culture of continuous improvement, increase employee satisfaction and retention and attract new talent to the company.
