Hi, I'm Mark Bower

Co-Founder, Intrapreneur Nation

I’ve spent most of my career flipping between startups, public sector and large corporations, helping aspiring innovators bring new products and services to life.

Innovation used to be something that only entrepreneurs did. But things have changed! Funding cuts, the rising cost of living and increased competition for charitable donations mean that public sector and non-profits are increasingly asking us to help them become more commercial.

The good news? Thanks to modern tools and processes it’s now easier than ever to test an idea to see if it’s any good, and then share it with the world.

I’ve worked with hundreds of people just like you, and at Intrapreneur Nation we know what works, what doesn’t and how to navigate this industry like an expert.

We've Helped Hundreds of Innovators Turn Ideas Into Products and Services


Across Many Different Categories

What's Included In Our Public Sector Innovation Programmes


Coaching Meeting

Your Own Personal Coach

The biggest value in partnering with Intrapreneur Nation is having 24/7 access to your own personal, one-to-one coach (at a fraction of the cost of actually having a full-time consultant!)

Our training programmes are designed so that you can get support (by voice, video or message) whenever you need help. Forget having to wait for next week's session… you can ask questions whenever you have them, without limit.

By investing in expert guidance, you’ll go further and faster, make fewer errors, and launch your product to success.

Innovation Roadmap

A Step-By-Step Innovation Framework

When work with us, you’ll get access to our Innovation Roadmap, which outlines the entire process of launching a new innovation. You’ll be able to see the big picture with clarity, along with each step you need to take to design, test, and launch your offer - without spending a fortune.

This roadmap covers team structure, customer research, market analysis, prototyping, risk management, internal political considerations, growth metrics, governance, pitching and much more. Use it as a master plan for your innovation and you’ll be light years ahead of everyone operating without a plan!

Support And Direction

When we work with you, we’ll review each step you take towards your goal and give you honest and specific feedback about how to improve and what to do next. This includes your business model, value proposition, positioning, growth targets, profit goals, marketing approach and more.

Expert support and direction is what gives you that extra edge… the quality you can’t always put your finger on, but that you just know when you see it. It's what attracts customers to you rather than your competitors! You’ll benefit immensely from having seasoned, personalized support available to you as you launch your offer.

5 Star Rated Service

Proven Track Record

We’ve helped hundreds of people just like you, using a wide variety of business models across diverse product categories. And 90% of those past delegates give us a 5-star rating!

To help people achieve their innovation goals, we go beyond providing training; Intrapreneur Nation programmes provide coaching and accountability too. There is a reason professional athletes, executives, actors etc. all 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! 

This 360° approach, combined with our deep knowledge of intrapreneurship and business building, is why we have a proven track record of helping corporate innovators launch.

Frequently Asked Questions


I have some questions about this service. Can I talk to someone?

Of course! Drop us a message and we'll setup a call. Click here to get started.

Does this really work in the public sector?

It really does. We've helped people in the public sector develop their ideas across many different categories — services, events, retail, software and more.

I only have an initial idea right now. Do I need to be any further along to get started?

This is a great place to start. You can follow all the best practices from the beginning.  We'll guide you through everything you need to do, step-by-step.

I don't have an idea for a product at all. Is that a problem?

Not at all. We can show you how to come up with dozens of ideas for a problem you want to solve.  So long as you have an idea of either the type of customer you'd like to work with or the problem you want to solve — that's all you need to get started.

Will I be working directly with Linda or Mark?

Yes, you'll be working with at least one of us as you launch your project. We always make sure to work in-person with our new clients so we can learn and adapt and give you the best service we can.

How much time do I need to commit to doing this?

Our programmes are a combination of training plus coaching. The goal is for you to develop your idea over the course of around 10-12 weeks. You should plan to commit to attending the training & coaching sessions every 2 weeks plus have time scheduled in-between to actually work on your idea.

What makes our programmes so successful is that they aren't just theoretical training. We work with you to move your project forward.
