Entrepreneurship involves developing a new venture outside an existing organisation whilst intrapreneurs are known as corporate entrepreneurships which is a relatively new concept that focuses on employees of an organisation that have many of the attributes of entrepreneurs. An Intrapreneur can be defined as an employee that takes risks to solve a given problem, develops a new venture within an existing organisation, exploits new opportunities and creates economic value. There is evidence that intrapreneurship helps managers to renew and revitalise their business, to innovate, and to enhance the organisation’s overall performance (Antoncic and Hisrich 2001). Intrapreneurship is an important element in organisational, economic and social development.
