Chapter 9: Working as technology scout and techno-intrapreneur

Magnus Hoppe


This is a story about a technology scout inside the intelligence organisation of a research and development (R & D) department whose job is to scout and bring new ideas into the company. It is not a story about someone who has been labelled intrapreneur by the company, or uses this denomination himself. On the contrary the intrapreneur label is an analytical construct, here used in order to examine the storyís theoretical potential. Having said this, I believe there are several interesting points to be made from this story, the most prominent being about how entrepreneurship inside organisations plays out in contrast to entrepreneurship outside organisations.
