What Defines an Intrapreneur - Maurizio de Franciscis

In Chapter 2 of 19 in his 2010 Capture Your Flag interview with host Erik Michielsen, education entrepreneur and Global Campus (www.globalcampus.com) founder Maurizio de Franciscis gets promoted several times within a medium-sized company by suggesting ideas and helping the company understand where to invest. Leaving account management for consulting and business development, he takes an entrepreneurial mindset internally inside an existing organization - an intrapreneurial mindset - and develops customer-centric ideas to help the company innovate. Specifically, De Franciscis connects his curiosity to empowering customers and providing them visibility and increased participation. De Franciscis graduated from Universita degli Studi di Roma - La Sapienza - and earned his MBA from INSEAD.
