Intrapreneur

A person who develops an idea and sees it to fruition within a large organization. For example, an intrapreneur may be an employee at a corporation who sees a problem with the way inventories are stored, and develops and implements a new way to store inventory. Intrepreneurs, in other words, are innovators within their organizations, but they usually do not start new organizations.
