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.

Getting kids moving with Nike
Sam McCracken, General Manager, Nike N7
When Sam embarked on his intrapreneurial journey – he wasn’t working in some high-powered executive office. He was working in a warehouse in Wilsonville, Oregon, when he had an idea. He said to himself, “I work for the biggest sports company in the world. I must be able to do something in my role at Nike to help my community.” He didn’t have a grand plan, he heard in a need in his community and believed he could help.
