Join Wharton alumnus and author, Kaihan Krippendorff W93 Eng94 as he shares insights about how most innovation happens from within organizations, not just at start ups. Learn how you can harness the entrepreneurial spirit of your teams!
Wednesday, Apr. 1st | 11:30 am PT
“Innovation” brings to our mind the maverick entrepreneur who quits their job, at unimaginable odds, to build a business on their own. But this entrepreneurial story is a myth. As a successful entrepreneur, author, consultant and CEO, Kaihan Krippendorff (W’94, Eng’95) argues that intrapreneurs – employees who incubate new businesses within corporations – have had a far greater impact on the world. Nearly all of the most transformative innovations over the past three decades, from e-mail and the Internet to DNA sequencing and MRI scans, were introduced by employees who did not quit their jobs but instead took the challenge of innovating from within.
Drawing on five years of in-depth research of hundreds of successful innovators and Intrapreneurial Intensity, as well as insights from thought leaders, C-suite leaders, business unit leaders, and front-line employees, Kaihan will share exclusive insights from his new book, Driving Innovation From Within: A Guide for Internal Entrepreneurs (Columbia University Press, 2019). Kaihan will unveil the most critical internal focus areas for driving innovation and moving your organization forward into the future. He will share specific tools, frameworks and techniques used by successful innovators to manage and unlock the value of employees’ ideas to increase corporate innovation levels and deliver bottom-line results. Audience members will have actionable next steps to transform their organization by testing and scaling fresh ideas that generate value and growth. They will leave feeling inspired and empowered, ready to take on the future.
In this inspiring session you will learn:
The 2020’s started out with a crazy thing called Covid. What will history say about this time period? Certainly, history will report that Covid-19 changed the way the world works, the way we think about inter-connections, and the way we connect with each other. Despite these changes, some things remain the same. We still need relationships and we still need to connect. Join us on Wednesday evening, October 21, 2020 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm as we explore the brave new world of networking and building relationships in a virtual world.
This event is exclusively for the alumni of the fifteen
