SAP

Invited guest kickoff speaker for SAP’s New Ventures & Technology Accelerator lab. This initiative is focused on growing new businesses organically as one strategy to continue SAP’s own dramatic growth from its early startup days to its current position as a global powerhouse. I shared several key lessons from other leading companies’ efforts to foster intrapreneurial zeal among their employees and suppliers; as well as relevant research from my two recent bestselling books on failure as a strategic resource and the personality characteristics of highly successful entre/intrapreneurs.
