Course Content

In this chapter, we will introduce the concept of innovating in large organisation, or Intrapreneurship for short. We will define what an Intrapreneur is and what role they play in a large organisation. We will then touch upon the entreprise innovation project life cycle and discuss different project outcomes.
In this chapter, we will look at the main driving factor of digital transformation and the fourth industrial revolution. We will also compare how the Intrapreneurship approach compares to other approaches of dealing with digital transformation, including M&As and Corporate Venture Capitalism.
In this chapter, we will investigate the categorisation of Intrapreneurship programmes. Specifically we will look into four categories: the shiny new “Thing”, the CSR alibi, the missing bridge, and significant business impact.
In this chapter, we address what it really means to be an entreprise innovator and whether it is for you. We compare how becoming an innovator within your organisation compares to becoming an entrepreneur and explore the risks and benefits of pitching an innovative project in your organisation.
Intrapreneurship, or innovating within a large organization, has gained significant momentum in recent years due to the increasing importance of digital transformation and the fourth industrial revolution. There are various approaches to intrapreneurship, including programs focused on “shiny new things,” corporate social responsibility, bridging gaps in the organisation, and driving significant business impact. Deciding whether intrapreneurship is right for you involves considering the risks and benefits of pitching an innovative project within your organisation, as well as comparing the experience to entrepreneurship. Ultimately, intrapreneurship can be a valuable way to drive innovation and bring new ideas to fruition within a large organisation.

Latest THINK Courses


CFTE’s brand new online learning platform! THINK produces and delivers dozens of bite-sized courses which will allow you to get a good understanding and be constantly updated about everything concerning Fintech!

Disruptive technologies and innovations don’t come on their own. They bring significant transformations and challenges both in terms of culture, people, jobs, environment and governance. Therefore we believe these topics can’t be separated from one another. 

The courses offered on THINK have slightly different approaches to the topics. You’ll find evergreen foundational-level courses which will help you get a good understanding without any prior knowledge, but you’ll also find courses that explore the players in the respective ecosystems, courses that explore the regulations of a certain field and even courses that dive deep into specific companies’ way of operating!

THINK is meant for all those professionals who want to be kept up to date with the latest developments in these fields, but don’t necessarily have the time to go through countless articles or newspapers.

Technology is deeply transforming the way financial institutions do business and manage operations. Understanding these shifts will allow you to benefit from them, and not miss out on any potential opportunities for you and your organisation.

Users and customers nowadays are more aware than ever about the environmental and social impact of their choices, as a consequence companies are putting more attention on these topics even at the cost of reduced financial performances.

Digital Assets, Blockchain, Decentralisation and Web3 are still in a very early stage. They may reshape and revolutionise our current business models, therefore we believe it’s worth  paying special attention to the innovations they bring to the table.

Understanding how technology works, its potential and its limitations is essential to properly embrace it and leverage it. Even non-technical professionals need to get a comprehensive understanding of these tools, as they will have an increasingly important role in our lives.
