Intrapreneurship Academy

Oct 19th
9:00 - 18:00
Impact Hub Geneva


Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is increasingly recognised as a core priority by a growing number of institutional actors. Furthermore, the covid-19 economic disruption presents a pressing need and unique opportunity for organisations to explore more resilient and sustainable models aligned with the SDGs.

Intrapreneurship refers to the application of entrepreneurial principles from within established organisations in order to lead innovative and purposeful change, and develop new working systems and outcomes.

The SDG Intrapreneurship Academy is a 6-month professional development programme for organisations across sectors evolving towards a more agile, entrepreneurial and purposeful culture.

Our vision is that organisations in Geneva leverage their full potential by using innovation to respond to societal needs, transforming their employees into intrapreneurial leaders and connecting to a wider community of changemakers that are paving the way for the new economy.
