To understand the "intrapreneur" let's first study the entrepreneur, from which the term was derived.
Entrepreneurs are born. The entrepreneurial spirit lives within those who desire to effect change.
Entrepreneurs organize, manage, and assume the risk for a business adventure. They take an idea for solving a problem and make it a reality. Combining skills, knowledge, and passion to become a tangible, sell-able, good product or service.
Some call it “vision” others “tenacity”, whatever it is, entrepreneurs are born with an innate sense, or ability, for solving problems through innovation. They read between the lines to find solutions that other people never even consider.
Entrepreneurs are born. However a person who has not considered the entrepreneurial path may be drawn into it. They were born with entrepreneurial characteristics that have not been identified. They became employees. They may even work entrepreneurially within a larger organization as an intrapreneur. The individual employee who sees a need for something then acts to make it a reality.
This still requires the individual to posses the entrepreneurial spirit; that is to say, they must have the drive to turn an idea into a reality.
Intrapreneurship is the act of behaving like an entrepreneur while working within a large organization.
Intrapreneurs are born, whether they realize it or not.
