Intrapreneurship Journey

How might we build a service line that uses second-hand clothing, and people love? That was the main question a team of 3 intrapreneurs from a large clothing company in Hamburg asked themselves. Impact Hub Hamburg supported the intrapreneur team on building an effective and compelling pitch-deck to gain buy-in from the board of directors. Additionally, the team was equipped with intrapreneurial methods and tools, and inner exploration guidance that enabled them to navigate their journey (eg, clarifying internal purpose, gaining stakeholder support, building community).
