Scott Gatz: Yahoo Intrapreneur

    July 21, 2006

Scott Gatz is pretty stoked at the ability to be an Intrapreneur at Yahoo. He gets to make a case for a project, acquire resources and above all, innovate.

Possibly building a profitable business within a business. Great stuff.

But shouldn’t any knowledge worker be able to do this at a BigCo? I have problems with using the word Intrapreneur, except for describing an innovative spirit.

The difference between an Intrapreneur and an Entrepreneur is the latter takes personal risk.
