Entrepreneur vs. Intrepreneur

Entrepreneur vs. Intrepreneur

What can social intrapreneurs learn from social entrepreneurs?

Wikipedia Definition:-
Entrepreneur: operates a business or businesses, taking on financial risk to do so
Intrapreneur: is the act of behaving like an entrepreneur while working within a large organization

Although the "new" word "Intrapreneur" is derived from the word "Entrepreneur" and the difference in wording seems slight, from E to I. In reality the two, Entrepreneur and Intrepreneur, are two very different individuals. More like "chalk and cheese" or oil and water" or “fish and bird” and both speak different languages.

Just because there is this “new title” for a “new product manager” namely " Intrapreneur” the individual is still a corporate thinking mind earning a pay packet. Whereas the true Entrepreneur takes on the financial risk.

Because some fish fly and some birds swim does not make the bird a fish or the fish a bird – This behaving like” is an “act” or “impersonation” . In my opinion “Fish cannot teach birds to fly” nor does "birds teach fish to swim"

Intrapreneurs Are Just Like Entrepreneurs...NOT! -Larry Myler

"Most people believe intrapreneurs are simply internal entrepreneurs who can be expected to act in the same ways, be driven by the same motivations, and respond similarly to a wide array of circumstances. These are naïve assumptions that, more often than not, will derail intrapreneurship."
