Intrapreneur Community

Join the Finance Matters Intrapreneur Community

Are you working to make finance better serve people and planet from within a financial institution?

Creating this kind of change can feel isolating, overwhelming and like you’re not clear what step to take next. You could really do with a space for thinking, practical tools and support.

That’s why we’ve created this Intrapreneur Community. Intrapreneurs are connected with likeminded peers from across institutions and can participate in activities such as:

  • Peer-to-peer coaching
  • Workshops & training
  • Leadership development programmes & retreats
  • Events
  • Networking opportunities with fellow intrapreneurs, fintechs, non-profits, academics and more members of the wider Finance Innovation Lab Community

 

It is currently free to be a member of the Finance Matters Intrapreneur Community. Some initiatives do have a participation fee to help us cover costs – but you only pay for what you choose to attend.

 

AM I AN INTRAPRENEUR?

 

For Finance Matters, being an intrapreneur doesn’t have to mean creating a new product or service. Creating change in finance could look like advocating for new KPI’s based on creating long term value, building an internal network of colleagues who care about positive impact or committing to raising social/environmental considerations in every team meeting.

The Finance Matters Intrapreneur Community is designed for individuals who meet all three of the following criteria:

  1. Finance professionals: Professionals employed by a financial institution and based in the UK.
  2. Internal changemakers: Actively working to create some kind of purpose-driven change within their institution, either side-of-desk or within your day-job.
  3. Seeking Support: Those who would value connecting with peers, learning from experts and developing as a systems change leader.

 

Examples of the type of change members of this Intrapreneur Community are working on include: changing KPIs to incentivise for long term decision making; changing a product/service to better serve customers; increasing diversity & inclusion amongst colleagues; developing a stewardship policy to make sustainability part of everybody’s job description; driving the transition toward low-carbon investing; collaborating across sectors to achieve better outcomes for people and planet.
