Intrapreneur (Corporate) – Google https://engageme.online/5-examples-of-companies-with-first-class-intrapreneurial-programmes/ 29 July 2019
Google allows employees to spend 20% of their time (or 1 day of a 5day working week) to work on projects that interest them. This enables creativity to follow and innovators to pursue their ideas. This has resulted in additional google products such as Gmail, Google News, Google Now etc.
I feel inspired by this company because it is important for creativity to be nurtured so that new ideas can be developed and grow.
