Intra or Entre?

Are you an intrapreneur or an entrepreneur?

According to Mohd Arif’s 2008 working paper on entrepreneurship from the Kauffman Foundation:

"An intrapreneur is a person who focuses on innovation and creativity and who transforms a dream or an idea into a profitable venture by operating within the organizational environment. In contrast, entrepreneur is a person who does similar things, but outside the organisational setting, entrepreneurs have the ability to see an opportunity, obtain the necessary capital, labor and other inputs, and the know-how to put together an operation successfully; they are willing to take the personal risk of success and failure."

Whether you’re an intrapreneur or an entrepreneur, can your idea make money?
