Within NewbizDev entrepreneurial attitudes and activities have a crucial role to play. Because of the nature of new business development, it can hardly be expected that the standard development model – plan a project, write it down detailed and implement it just according to a plan – would be proper to create a new successful business. Entrepreneurial approach is needed.
Intrapreneurship means entrepreneurship that takes place inside existing corporations. JaMaSer collaborates with Academy for Corporate Entrepreneurship (www.afce.co) which is a global service provider for development of corporate entrepreneurship. Same principles as within corporations can be followed in mid-sized company context although there are differences on a practical level.
Hardly any modern entrepreneurs work alone. Rather it is matter of team work where a team consist of persons with different kinds of traits and skills. For a long time it has already been proven that such entrepreneurial teams inside organizations can be successful. The next step is to have entrepreneurial teams that cross existing organizational lines.
JaMaSer has started to promote a new activity calling it collapreneurship. It is applied in cases where the viable alternative to reach business stage is to collaborate. Collapreneuship is applied to enable fast start up type development that does not get stuck in the collaboration bureaucracy that even mid-sized companies have as they operate on areas belonging to incremental business development.
