Term or phrase Entrepreneurs inside
Status wired
Notes Entrepreneurs inside include a combination of people, resources, and structures that create the ecosystem inside a company which allows for the creation of social value alongside economic value. Just as entrepreneurs see business opportunities, entrepreneurs inside see ways to create social value and financial value. Examples of entrepreneurial ventures range from: “the development of a new market-making innovation, product, service, or program…; to the creation of an entrepreneurial culture within their organization or community… to catalyzing change across a networked infrastructure (e.g., addressing food deserts through public-private community networks.”

Examples of entrepreneurs inside include Dave Stangis at the Campbell’s Soup Company and Kevin Thompson at IBM.

Resource description Dave Stangis stirs in sustainability at Campbell Soup

By Eban Goodstein, Ian Edwards, Meghan Ryan and Christina Wildt Published April 17, 2014

Bard MBA: Could you give us an overview of what sustainability means at Campbell?

Stangis: When we talk about it inside the company, we really do talk about building a strategy that drives innovation, cost reduction, time to market and better decisions. And that discipline of sustainability expands every day to new areas such as procurement and sustainable agriculture. Our philosophy is to move from people doing good work to business processes. We leverage all of the tools a business has to drive group performance and integration from training to recognition to even executive compensation. So, that's really the high level, the framework in terms of sustainability: the long-term destination goals to drive change, culture and performance. And there's also the integration piece: How to turn it into business process from just good ideas.
