Innovation Leadership Forum, Corporate Intrapreneurship

  • Comcast 1701 John F Kennedy Blvd Philadelphia, PA, 19103 United States

Business executives, public and academic thought leaders, as well as students of innovation/design throughout the greater Philadelphia region. This will be attended by men and women from all sizes of companies and institutions, a broad range of industries, at all stages of growth, and covering both the profit, non-profit, public and academic sectors. They will be people who want to do more tomorrow than they can do today. And they’re looking for ways that Philadelphia-based institutions accomplish this. 200+ attendees expected.

The focus of our event is “Exploring Corporate Entrepreneurship: How It Works”

GPSEG and Comcast want to bring together thought leaders in the corporate entrepreneurship (Intrapreneurship) space that have had to figure out how to grow their organizations over time – people who’ve had to sell their ideas within the corporate environment, get funding, and execute a successful program. This frequently leads to developing new markets, exploring ‘white space ideas,’ and creating some unanticipated positive outcomes. The ‘surprises’ that come out of this process frequently exceed initial expectations. This doesn’t come without risk and failure but that is the nature of the ‘journey.’

We want to learn how you created a successful intrapreneurial campaign, developed, sold, and successfully executed it, and explore the ‘bumps’ along the path to success.
