Intrapreneurship Mastery Training Programme

A cohort-based course where you'll learn how to create the products and services customers really want and will pay for (as quickly as a start-up).

Internal Startup Team Brainstorming

But unlike other innovation courses, you will put your learning into practice by building your idea step-by-step alongside our coaches over 2-3 months.

Quiz: Is Intrapreneurship Mastery right for you?

Do you want more innovation at your company, but aren't sure of the best way to get started?

Do you need better ideas? Are you confused with all the different tools, strategies and processes out there for innovation work? 

Have you started an innovation project, but now feel stuck?

Is company bureaucracy holding you back?
Or are you hacking away adding new features, but never getting any traction?

Do you have plenty of ideas, but struggle to move them forward?

Are you unsure which idea is the best to invest in?
Do bosses dismiss your ideas? 
Do you wish there was some way to filter out the high-risk, low-reward ideas in advance? 

If any of these sound familiar...

Then Intrapreneurship Mastery was built for you.

The framework you need to go from idea to product... systematically, repeatably, profitably. 

Creating new products and services is hard. Most new innovations fail. The most common reason? Building something nobody wants.

All beginner intrapreneurs face the same problems:

If you're reading this, the chances are that one (or more) of these problems keep cropping up (and keeping you from building your new product or service).

And the chances are, you know you should be doing more — which is why you're here in the first place.

Whether it's to expand your customer base, defend from competitors or help you work on something you really love, new product innovation is something that you've been looking to fix for a while. 

10 Common Intrapreneur Problems

The accountability you've been missing.

Maybe you've tried innovation projects before. But, time and again, they don't work out. For some reason you don't get the wins you hoped for. What starts off exciting becomes too difficult. And before you know it, you're back to square one. 

But this is because companies' traditional accountability models don't work for innovation projects.

There is a reason top athletes rely on coaches to be at their best – you need someone outside yourself to help you push through creative and mental blocks, maintain your stamina, and stay committed to your goals!

Intrapreneurship Mastery solves this problem. You work alongside our coaches and fellow intrapreneurs, all with the same goal as you: to create successful new products and services.

The creates accountability and motivation like never before.

Innovation projects alone are hard. Working in a community with an experienced coach is 10x easier

Demolish your bad intrapreneurial habits.

There are 3 killers of great new ideas...

Bad Habbit #1:
Overthinking

So many beginner intrapreneurs think success stems from having the best ideas. It's doesn't. What we now know is that the best solutions come from trying out lots of ideas, systematically testing them with customers, and then incrementally improving them. And that means not overthinking the process.

Bad Habbit #2:
Aiming too broad

Have you ever tried to create a product that appeals to a large market, but found that however many new features you add, people still don't buy? This is one of the most common challenges for new innovators. In a quest to create a product with mass-market appeal they build something that fails to solve the customer's real problem better than the competition... and as a result the product appeals to no-one.

Bad Habbit #3:
Listening to the "experts"

As soon as you change your idea to please a boss or someone else who claims to understand your customer deeply, you'll find yourself headed in entirely the wrong direction. Companies are full of "experts" with vested interests who think they know best. Keeping focused on the customer while also managing the internal politics is one of the HARDEST parts for intrapreneurs.

Stop building products and services no-one wants.

The biggest mistake early intrapreneurs make? Building more and more features that no-one wants. In the beginning you think you know what the customer wants, and you think you know what the solution will look like.

But newsflash: you don't.

With this assumption early intrapreneurs enter a sloth-like feedback loop that makes adapting to customer needs on-the-fly impossible.

Instead, you want to try some ideas out and then listen for buyer intent. When you follow the process we teach in Intrapreneurship Mastery you'll quickly discover what customers are REALLY willing to pay for. And you'll do it all using low-cost, low-risk tools and techniques.

Noise, signal, double-down
Things you don't need before you start your innovation project

Stop planning.
Start creating.

Let's be honest.

If you're reading this you already know that developing new products, services and business models is a vital aspect of continued business growth. But if you're like most companies, you're not doing it as well as you know you should be.

Perhaps you've been putting it off. Not sure of the right process to use. Or maybe you're stuck building project plans that for all their effort, still leave you with an uneasy feeling that the risks are still unknown.

Luckily Intrapreneurship Mastery will give you a clear path to follow. A path that introduces a new set of business management tools specifically designed for managing potentially high-risk, high-reward innovation projects. And once you learn them, you'll never want to run projects in the same way again. 

No more staring at your task list unsure what one thing to do next to shift the dial.

If this feeling seems familiar, you're not alone.

In fact, you're just like all the other innovators who joined Intrapreneurship Mastery. 

Well, you're like they used to be.

Because after completing Intrapreneurship Mastery, you'll know exactly what to do each step of the way. 

  • How to set appropriate targets,
  • What to do if targets are missed,
  • How to interpret customer feedback...

And when to cut your losses to pivot to something else.

Ideas in secret die. Share your ideas.

Get your idea out in front of customers. Get real feedback.

Building a prototype is the worst thing you can do when you are creating a new product or service.

Slaving over proof-of-concept just to create something that your bosses dismiss before you even have a chance to get in front of customers?

No thanks.

Instead, don't give them the opportunity to say "no". Start smaller with napkin sketches and a carefully crafted customer interview. Try lots of ideas. Get rapid feedback. Find the one thing customers' are desperate for.

During Intrapreneurship Mastery, you'll get the chance to do just this, and we'll be there alongside you to help you make sense of the results.

Build an audience.
Build engagement. 
Build a line of business.

Building alongside your customers opens up limitless opportunities.

We've had delegates go on to get promoted, get offered shares in a new subsidiary company, work in their dream role, and go on to launch their idea to thousands of raving fans.

Whatever your goals are for intrapreneurship, the Intrapreneurship Mastery programme will get you there faster.

The growth curve is not linear, it is exponential

Form important new relationships with like-minded people across your company.

"I came for the innovation but stayed for the community."

Being a intrapreneur can feel lonely. Few people will understand why you are so excited about your idea (and many will be quite happy to tell you why it won't work). But it doesn't have to be like this.

With Intrapreneurship Mastery we make it easy to get motivation and share wins with other innovators just like you. You'll learn alongside a group of dedicated individuals with a wide range of skills and backgrounds.

The best part? Every single one of them has the same goal as you:

To grow a raw idea into a thriving new venture.

Intrapreneur Community Online Meeting

Welcome to Intrapreneurship Mastery

Here's how it works.


Learn the fundamentals of intrapreneurship


On the surface Intrapreneurship Mastery is a course teaching you how to create new products and services.

Upon joining, you'll unlock a 3-month curriculum packed with frameworks that guarantee you'll become an expert intrapreneur... provided you put in the effort!

  • 10 live sessions covering everything you need to know to become a successful product innovator and intrapreneur
  • Full access to all the slide decks we use during the course presentations (over 600 slides packed with information)
  • Templates, examples and ideas for you to download and use (that will save you endless hours of headache in the future)
  • 24x7 access to our coaches in an exclusive online community - ask a question anytime you need help
  • Personalized progress reviews, feedback and advice to help you develop your idea into a profitable new product or service

Put your learning into practice by building your concept alongside us over 90 days


Other innovation courses charge you thousands of pounds, only to provide a 4-day course packed with "theory" and classroom exercises.

And by the end , you leave with a bunch of notes that sit in a folder for an eternity. Meanwhile, you're still confused and unsure about the very next step to take.

But Intrapreneurship Mastery is about moving quickly, taking action and keeping a tight feedback loop.

You will build and test your idea with real customers over the duration of the programme.

After 90 days you'll have conceived and tested dozens of product and feature ideas, discarded most, and zeroed in on the one(s) most likely to succeed.

And by doing this consistently, you'll demolish business risk, fear of failure and perfectionism.

Take inspiration and motivation from a diverse group of innovators, all on the same journey as you


Innovation doesn't have to be lonely.

But for most intrapreneurs, it certainly feels that way.

Which is why Intrapreneurship Mastery is the best programme to start building new products and services.

Other training courses can give you all the theory. But a massive part of being an intrapreneur is handling the internal politics. If you fail to do that, you'll get nowhere.

In Intrapreneurship Mastery, you'll surround yourself with like-minded people with the same goals as you: to build and launch a successful new product or service.

All around you'll find new allies who can support you and help fight your corner when things get tough.

  • People from all grades at your company - new hire to seasoned executive
  • People across the whole business, from Finance to IT, HR to Marketing and more.
  • People who understand why you're not following the 'traditional' process and can back you up

Build a network of fellow innovators while using the community for accountability and feedback


Leading an innovation project can be mentally tough.

Most people don't like change. But when you're an innovator, you're the one responsible for driving big, often rapid changes. Whether motivated by fear, jealousy or genuine belief they are right, everywhere you go you'll find someone quick to tell you why you will fail.

It can be exhausting.

That's why you need a place to recoup your energies and draw inspiration from others.

Intrapreneurship Mastery is that place.

Upon joining we pair you with groups of people with the same goals and interests as you.

These groups offer the accountability, feedback and motivation you need to finally push your idea forward effectively.

And throughout the programme, you have dozens of chances to collaborate, build relationships, learn from one another, give and receive feedback, and everything in between.

Hello! From Your Intrapreneurship Mastery Coaches


Linda Cheung

Linda Cheung - Co-founder

Mark Bower

Mark Bower - Co-founder

We are corporate escapees with 20+ years of startup experience and we're on a mission to enable all businesses to be as entrepreneurial as startups.

Let's face it: Training companies are a dime a dozen.

So how do you separate those who “walk the talk” from the ones who merely…
...talk?

At Intrapreneur Nation, that was our problem too. You see, we don’t just teach intrapreneurship and innovation best practices, we genuinely DO IT.

We aren’t academics. We aren’t researchers. We aren’t rent-a-trainer delivering a stock course.

We’re entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, running companies and working inside large corporates. We're leading culture change and embedding intrapreneurial skills every day.

In other words: WE ACTUALLY DO THIS STUFF…

…so we know how hard it is to find truly skilled people who know that they’re talking about.

And that’s why we created the “Intrapreneurship Mastery” training programme.

We built this programme for some large corporates who saw what we were doing and asked us to “draw back the curtain”… to show them first-hand how to go beyond the innovation "fluff" and implement modern business practices that enable them to drive growth and take advantage of the enormous opportunities ahead.

Now we're making this programme available to the world...

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How will this course help me?

A. It depends on who you are…
If you’re a director, exec or business unit manager, this programme is the best way to bridge the gap between innovation and product development... so you no longer have to "bet the company" in order to bring high-risk, high-reward products to market. It's also a great way to invest in, and retain your employees. Giving them the skills and support to lead new innovation projects and then drive them through to launch is a win-win for everyone.

If you’re an innovation manager or team manager, this programme will give you the tools to take innovation projects to market in a structured and consistent way, along with a common language, management toolset and reporting framework that'll ensure everyone on the project is working to the same goal.

If you’re an employee or product manager you’ll get new skills that’ll help you explore, experiment, learn and then pitch, so that ultimately you can turn your ideas into reality.

Q. What's the time commitment?

A. Life is busy. We get it. It helps if you're working on a real innovation project that your company wants to move forward.

There is a live training and coaching session to attend every 2-3 weeks. On top of that you should do the recommended assignments to build your idea into a product. About 6-8 hours effort every 2-3 weeks should be sufficient.

Q. How is the course delivered?

A. The course is delivered in 10 modules, typically over a period of 3-4 months.
A key part of the success of the course is derived from embedding a new intrapreneurial mindset and start-up ethos into delegates. To do this effectively we provide coaching and guidance as attendees actively put their new skills into practice – in real projects – over the course of the programme. As challenges and doubts come to mind, we’re there to help overcome obstacles and ensure the learning sticks.

Q. Do I need a technical background to attend this course?

A. No! In fact, just the opposite. In the course we’ll show how you don’t need to work in R&D and you don’t need a Ph.D. to be able to innovate like a start-up.

The truth is that ANYONE can create successful innovations and develop new business models. And we’ll give you all the tools to do just that!

Q. Can you deliver customized course content for our organization?

A. Yes! Just mail us at hello@intrapreneurnation.com and we''ll get right back to you to discuss your specific requirements.

Q. Can you provide the course as on-demand online training?

A. We're more than happy to deliver the training course online, in a live webinar format. 

We don’t provide pre-recorded, on-demand videos however. This is because a key part of our programme (that makes it so uniquely successful!) is the interactive element – including live coaching and feedback for the delegates as they build their own intrapreneurial projects.

Q. How many attendees are on each course?

A. We recommend that each course has a minimum of 3 people and a maximum of 12.

Because we place a strong focus on discussion, coaching and feedback, any more than 12 participants would impact our ability to spend adequate time with each participant.

Q. What if I have more questions?

A. You can fill out the contact form below and one of the team will get back to you.
