The Intrapreneur Edge

Stand out to Employers

Being entrepreneurial is not only about starting your own business; it can also involve intrapreneurship—using entrepreneurial skills within an organization. We offer an intrapreneur program where participants learn and practice important leadership skills, like decision-making, goal setting, creative problem solving, and resourcefulness. Whether you envision yourself as a future founder, or you’re striving to become a leader within an existing company, this skill set will help to set you apart.

This three-month program runs from February to April 2021. Spaces are limited, and applications are now open—learn more and apply below.

Please note, this program is only open to BCIT Students (part-time and full time) at this time, and not alumni.

 

Program Requirements

Program Outline

The program involves a combination of online activities and events.

1. Online Activities:

You will be able to choose from a variety of online training modules that you can complete on your own time. Each module explores different facets of intrapreneurship and examines how entrepreneurial skills are used in the workplace.

You will have to complete a total of three modules (of approximately 30 minutes each) over three months.

2. Events:

We are excited to continue our partnership with the Microsoft Garage, Microsoft’s hackspace and official outlet for experimental projects. The Intrapreneur Edge program will kick off with an online design thinking workshop hosted by Microsoft.

After three months of learning intrapreneurial skills, we will meet again online with Microsoft so you can apply your skills in a fun and engaging case competition. You will have the opportunity to work in a team on your assigned case between February and April 2021. Team presentations will be delivered online during the second meeting so that you can get direct feedback on your ideas from Microsoft.

In addition to these two online events with Microsoft, you will choose one other online BCITSA Entrepreneurship event to attend. Different options will be available.

Complete introductory online training of 1½hours early in February 2021
