"Innovation is a popular word these days,” organizer Frank Koe said. Koe is a teaching professor of engineering entrepreneurship. He said that, while all companies see themselves as 'innovative,' he is curious about how they define the term in their own firms.

“A recent Gallop poll discovered that nearly 54% of employees have been found to be unengaged at work,” he said. “Everyone matters these days and the companies that can bring out the best in everyone and see that employees have more to offer than fulfilling a job description to the letter will innovate at the speed of change and be true innovators."

The conference will bring together small and medium-sized businesses to discuss the inclusion of intrapreneurship within their company cultures.

Group discussions will include:

  • Intent of intrapreneurship
  • Role of management and company culture
  • Rewarding intrapreneurial innovation and consequences of “failure”
  • Hiring practices for intrapreneurial growth
  • Best practices in intrapreneurialism
  • Examples of intrapreneurialism working
