How do you inspire your best employees to solve real business challenges? How do you foster the innovation within your organization? How do you keep your most talented people engaged?
The Founder Institute intrapreneurship academy offers answers for all of these questions. Your employees enroll in the 3.5 month training program, where they learn best practices on building a business with technology at the core. These “intrapreneurs” are pushed to solve real problems faced by your company. The employees develop their ideas and solutions outside of conventional business hours, during the nights and weekends. Approximately 75% of the employees will have ideas that can be integrated into the parent company as a business unit or process improvement, and 25% will propose solutions that have the potential to be stand alone companies that partner with your organization. You can even explore taking equity in these businesses. Everyone comes out of the program excited and invigorated with innovative solutions that drive business results.
