Entrepreneur or Intrapreneur? Which is Right for You?

People with an entrepreneurial bent don’t always consider all their career options. One of those is intrapreneurship, which means acting as an entrepreneur within a larger company, using the resources of the company to promote a product or service you believe in. Many of the same benefits and rewards of owning your own company can come from such a role while removing the stress of having to create an entire business infrastructure from scratch.

Further, many companies seek out intrapreneurs and are willing to reward them accordingly. Presenter Elena Cahill will discuss the traits and benefits attached to both intrapreneurship and entrepreneurship and will provide some guideposts for any one with entrepreneurial spirit Wednesday, May 6, at 7 p.m., in the Rotary Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road. Registration is requested.

Presenter Elena L. Cahill is managing partner of Globele Energy, an energy conservation and generation consulting company in New Haven. She is a senior lecturer in business law, international business, and entrepreneurship at the University of Bridgeport.

This talk is part of the Small Business Strategies series for current and prospective entrepreneurs, presented through a partnership with the Greater Bridgeport Chapter of SCORE, a non-profit dedicated to helping small businesses succeed through education and mentorship.
