Punks And Pinstripes The Secret Society Of Exponential Intrapreneurship

Inside of every huge company rests a dormant volcano of intrapreneurs waiting to be activated, waiting to disrupt the status quo, waiting to create an innovation inflection point.

But they often suppress their innovation superpowers for fear of being ostracized. They keep their heads down, follow the formula, and try not make too many waves. 

Greg Larkin, serial intrapreneur and best-selling author of This Might Get Me Fired, brings us into the room where bold intrapreneurs refuse to slow down and defer their dreams. He shares stories from Google, PwC, and Bloomberg where a new generation of leaders find their voice, build community, and create a “new normal” for their company, their market and themselves. 

You’ll learn how to: 

  1. Build an innovation coalition - The entrepreneur underground consists of  people who don’t seem to belong together. In a large corporation this usually is a powerful executive in total solidarity with someone who refuses to hide their neck tattoo. 
  2. Enlist The Godfather. The Godfather is the one executive who’s more afraid of extinction than change. They are the powerful leaders within an organization who are determined to leave a legacy of innovation and modernization. 
  3. Announce The Arrival of A New Era . Word of an innovation coalition travels fast in a huge company. Great intrapreneur teams announce their arrival with a bang.
