What makes you an intrapreneur? What are the skills, capabilities, and personality traits that make you an intrapreneur?
I have been developing the Global Incubator technology for entrepreneurs since August 2010. Seeing a need for regional development agencies and other international actors to pull tailored social enterprises into their region, I co-proposed a spin-off called Pullapproach.
Since July 2012, we have been testing and developing our prototype with a large non-profit agency in Latin America. As CEO, I am responsible for establishing strategic goals and coordinating efforts between the core Pullapproach team and Global Incubator in order to co-develop technology that measures social impact and is based on complex models. Prior leadership experiences equip me to identify opportunities, establish vision for the team and to build long-term partnerships with key stake holders.
