Futurized - thought leadership on the future

How can Corporates Reignite the Entrepreneurial Spirit?

June 30, 2020

Futurist Trond Arne Undheim interviews Steve Epner, who teaches corporate entrepreneurship at Saint Louis University and was the Entrepreneur-in-residence at Boeing. They discuss how corporations and startups best innovate, together and alone, including Trond's notion of innovation biospheres from his innovation book, Disruption Games. The takeaway is that entrepreneurial spirit is a bit like magic, which forces you to think differently, and a bit like improvisation, but mostly learned by exposure to risk and a willingness to take that risk. After listening, explore more of Steve's Outside Inside Thinking or read his book Simplify Everything (2012).
