Leadership Perspectives: Driving an Entrepreneurial Spirit in Any Organization
Tuesday, November 10, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
You often hear about entrepreneurs, but what about intrapreneurs—those people who push innovating thinking inside an established organization? What’s the overlap between entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship, and how do the two differ? With the rate of change in today’s world, this kind of forward-thinking isn’t just valuable, it’s indispensable.
Join WashU Olin business pioneer and alum Carl Casale for a dynamic discussion with Doug Villhard, a serial entrepreneur and the school’s resident expert on entrepreneurship. You’ll take away great ideas on how to tap into an entrepreneurial spirit to advance your career—whether you’re helming a startup, firmly entrenched in corporate America or somewhere in between.
