This month an innovative global forum will assist young companies in getting their businesses off the ground. Devised by The Firm, a new private international business and development club, the forum aims to connect corporations and investors with pioneering thinkers — intrapreneurs — to enable the launch of new projects and ideas. “Intrapreneurs are individuals based in large companies or small and medium enterprises who have knowledge and insight of business gaps in the market,” explains The Firm founder and president Abdullah Al Subyani. The event will draw attention to the importance of corporate entrepreneurship and the role it plays in driving business and economic growth. Areas covered at the forum will include: how to develop the market-place for intrapreneurship; how to network with the emerging providers of intrapreneurship related services and investors; how to plan for early retirement; and, finally, how to shift from an intrapreneur to successful business person. A number of keynote speakers will be in attendance; Gifford Pinchot, the man behind the word ‘intrapreneur’, will be advising and educating attendees; Naveed Khan, former chief executive of Siemens Ventures, will be speaking on the subject as will Dr Maher Chebbo, the vice president of SAP France. Over 500 regional and international participants are expected to attend the two-day event. E Visit www.thefirm-online.com.
