The Role and Responsibilities of a Corporate Entrepreneur:

Corporate Entrepreneurs take proven innovations and new technologies from the Company’s many sources and deploy the most promising ones at major organisations for an uncapped fair share of the value that they add. Corporate Entrepreneurs ideally will have an entrepreneur’s mindset coupled with experience as a senior corporate executive. They represent the best talent from the corporate world who thrive at the leading edge of change and innovation. They are ambitious and highly driven, often frustrated with the constraints of the corporate treadmill and impatient with internal politics. Corporate Entrepreneurs are self-starters who drive the projects that they believe in. There are several ways of becoming a Corporate Entrepreneur:

  • Employer: Your employer sponsors you through the Corporate Entrepreneur Programme to deploy innovations at your employer. Fortunately, there are innovations and new technologies ready for immediate deployment so that you can demonstrate early commercial potential. If your employer is a major corporate with revenues of over $500m, this can be the first step to setting up a Corporate Cyclone vehicle with us.

  • Other Organisations: Join one of the organisations interested in recruiting Corporate Entrepreneurs to deploy the Company’s innovations and new technologies. If the organisation is a large corporate, this may be with a view to forming a Corporate Cyclone Innovation Vehicle.

  • Innovation Vehicle Investor: An investor investing in a vehicle before the corporate partner has joined can recruit Corporate Entrepreneurs with the Company.

  • Freelance Corporate Entrepreneur: You can go through the Corporate Entrepreneur Programme either with an investor sponsoring you or financed with your own resources.

Corporate Cyclone Innovation Vehicle:

Having rapidly proven your capabilities as a Corporate Entrepreneur, you can join an Innovation Vehicle (IV) between our Client and a major corporate. Corporate Entrepreneurs can leverage the customers, brand and operational scale of a major corporate by joining an IV with each of them. They are called Corporate Cyclone IVs because they deploy the 5 driving forces that are making the Tech Tornadoes so successful at disrupting industry after industry:

  • An ambitious, driven Founder/CEO with a passion for innovation
