Intrapreneurs venture into uncharted territory daily; there is no roadmap for the journey we are on. Yet, we can capture and share learnings from experiments – big and small – across the world. Our Intrapreneur’s Toolkit – originally published in 2013 has been downloaded over 10,000 times! In 2020, we published an updated resource – The Intrapreneur’s Guide to Pathfinding – to incorporate all that we’ve learned since 2013 and to provide practical insights for intrapreneurs in the private, public and non-profit sectors.

Interested in checking out the original toolkit? You can download it here. But, don’t miss out on the updates in our Book and accompanying Intrapreneur’s Compass.

It is a key output of the Intrapreneur Systems Challenge which was jointly hosted by The League of Intrapreneurs and Business Fights Poverty, with support from DFID, CEMEX, and The BMW Foundation.


A Field Guide for Corporate Changemakers. 

Published in partnership with The Skoll Foundation, Allianz and IDEO, this report presents a field guide to the world of social intrapreneurship – its challenges and opportunities – and draws on in-depth research undertaken by SustainAbility in twenty leading global corporations.
