Are you a social intrapreneur? Do you transform the way companies think about business? At Yunus Social Business we want to better understand the key challenges and success factors social intrapreneurs are facing. Our work maps out the emerging sector of intrapreneurship in collaboration with leading academic institutions and practitioners.
To capture this information we are launching our social intrapreneurship survey! As companies are starting to shift away from the simple shareholder-centric model, social intrapreneurs are at the forefront of making this change tangible. The survey is designed to unveil the opportunities and challenges of social intrapreneurs. It will focus the spotlight on the sector and help intrapreneurs understand how to validate and scale impactful initiatives.
Fill the survey by Nov 30 to participate, it should only take around 10 minutes and each respondent enters a lottery to win a meeting with Nobel Laureate Prof. Muhammad Yunus!
