Lynelle Cameron
Autodesk Foundation and Autodesk, Inc.

 
 
 

The challenges of 9 billion are well known – energy and climate, water, land and resources, health, education, urbanization.  We know these challenges are only becoming more epic. Designers around the world are rising to the challenge – focusing their talents, ambitions and careers to ask the right questions and design scalable (dare I say) epic solutions.

Are Intrapreneurs the New Rock-Stars?

Rajeeb Dey
Enternships.com

 
 
 

Why don’t we celebrate the intrapreneurs more? Coming to Skoll has helped me empathize more with the challenges intrapreneurs face and I urge us all to support the intrapreneurial movement. Campaigns such as The League of Intrapreneurs are playing their part in doing this but I feel that the time has come for us to turn the spotlight on these unsung heroes.
