Join the Skoll World Forum Ecosystem Event to learn how to unlock the potential of social innovation in your organisation.
This interactive and practical event will include speakers at the cutting edge of social innovation, including Barclays' Social Innovation Facility, CEMEX’s Patrimonio Hoy initiative and Pearson’s Tomorrow’s Markets Incubator.
Corporate social intrapreneurs develop profitable new products, services, or business models that create value for society and their company. But being a social intrapreneur is not easy. The “corporate immune system” tends to fight different or unfamiliar ideas and it can be hard to make a convincing investment case.
Despite the challenges, social innovation is starting to take root where companies have put in place the internal resources, support systems and partnerships that intrapreneurs need to thrive.
But this remains unfamiliar territory for many organisations and much more needs to be done to understand what corporate intrapreneurs really need to succeed.
For this reason, Business Fights Poverty, in partnership with the League of Intrapreneurs and DFID, are bringing together social intrapreneurs from companies at the forefront of embracing social innovation – Barclays, CEMEX and Pearson - to share what they are learning about how to enable intrapreneurs to develop and launch their ideas, and ensure they flourish over the long-term.
By attending this free event you will:
- learn about how social innovation can drive business and societal value.
- explore real-life examples from leading companies of what social innovation looks like and how it is being enabled.
- access insights from peers on how to enable social intrapreneurs to succeed in your organisation.
- have the opportunity to share your own experiences as part of a select group of like-minded innovators and thinkers.
- get free access to the Skoll World Forum plenaries and Awards ceremony.
