The purpose of this chapter is to gain insights on individual intrapreneurial orientation and hence examine the intrapreneurial potential resting in IT students, as they are prime possible future technology intrapreneurs by their education. Technopreneurship has gained in importance, but due to its focus on independent technology entrepreneurs, research overlooks the value of intrapreneurial employees. An online survey was conducted, and hypotheses referring to intrapreneurial orientation and personal initiative were tested on a sample of IT students in Austria. Results reveal interesting findings concerning IT students’ intrapreneurial orientation and highlight their potential as future technology intrapreneurs. By investigating intrapreneurial orientation, the research offers a holistic view on possible entrepreneurial behaviour and underlines the relevance of intrapreneurial potential already resting in students. In addition, by combining the technological and intrapreneurship contexts, interesting insights on IT students as future technology intrapreneurs are provided.
