Celebrating and connecting leaders in their quest to drive #changefromwithin
League of Intrapreneurs Fellows are ambassadors for the global intrapreneurship movement.
We celebrate these intrapreneurs for the courage, care, creativity and pure grit they bring to their work and for the impact they have made from within some of our most influential institutions.
League Fellows work across sectors – public, private and non-profit – and are tackling pressing societal issues from creating inclusive political systems, to fostering access to healthcare, to developing circular economy business models. These intrapreneurs are ushering a just, equitable and regenerative future.
Fellows are selected annually through a nomination process and invited to participate in our League Fellowship Program – a magical combination of community connection, leadership development, storytelling and solutions building curated by our facilitators who are expert at creating safe spaces for learning, collaboration and wellbeing.
The League of Intrapreneurs Fellowship Program has been created in collaboration with the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt.
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer.
Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
THE LEAGUE OF INTRAPRENEURS FELLOWSHIP JOURNEY
At the heart of the League of Intrapreneurs Fellowship is the opportunity for intrapreneurs to enhance their leadership capacity by connecting and learning with a group of like-minded disruptors from across the world, sharing challenges and opportunities to create systemic impact. The Fellowship is informed by our decades of experience and by the tools and frameworks highlighted in our recent book: The Intrapreneur’s Guide to Pathfinding.
Our Fellowship starts with an immersive 10- week-long Program with a cohort of ~25 intrapreneurs, designed to dive deep into pressing questions about their intrapreneurship journey and innovation projects. By the end of this virtual learning experience, the participants will have greater clarity about how to create systemic impact, a powerful network of co-travelers and new tools to share their story far and wide.
And this is just the beginning of the journey. After the program, the participants will be invited to join our community of over 200 League Fellows worldwide and a series of ongoing events, including an in-person gathering with all of our Fellows in February 2022 (Kaleidoscope 2022), when it is hopefully safe to travel again.
The League of Intrapreneurs hosts two types of Fellowship experiences: Global and Regional.
- Our Global Fellowship welcomes high-impact intrapreneurs from different corners of the globe to expand their horizons and connect around global challenges.
- Our Regional Fellowships bring together high-impact intrapreneurs from a common region to explore potential collaboration for greater systemic impact in the region.
In 2021 all of our Fellowship Programs will be delivered virtually with three focus areas: Global, North America and Brazil.
The Global and North American Fellowships have been created in collaboration with the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt.

WHO CAN BECOME A LEAGUE FELLOW?
League Fellows are experienced intrapreneurs selected through a nomination process. Upon receiving a nomination, the League of Intrapreneurs team, together with the Fellowship partners, carefully selects 25 intrapreneurs per cohort. Here’s what we consider when selecting Fellows:
+ Do they work for an influential institution that can contribute meaningfully to a societal challenge?
(We use the UN SDGs as an impact framework and also adapt this for local realities.)
+ Do they have an entrepreneurial spirit and demonstrated grit?
+ Do they have the capacity to influence change through trusted networks, skill sets or position?
+ Are they working at a systems level, influencing change beyond the incremental?
+ Do they share the League values?
+ Do they bring diversity of perspective, experience or background to our community of Global Fellows?
