Sabe o que é um Innerpreneur?


An innerpreneur is an entrepreneur who use their business to find personal fulfillment (creatively, spiritually, emotionally) and create social change.


You may have heard the terms ‘creative class‘, ‘creative capitalism‘, or ‘cultural creative‘ used to describe us as well. Basically, we want to use business to improve the world and ourselves.

We have the defining entrepreneurial traits. We have a(n):

  • high need for achievement
  • high need for independence
  • low need for conformity
  • internal locus of control
  • love of ambiguity
  • propensity for risk-taking
  • obsession with opportunity

But innerpreneurs are characteristically different as we start businesses to aid in our personal growth rather than that of a company’s. We start our businesses so we can find personal fulfillment and satisfaction through our work.

We are driven by our need to realize our full potential, to make a difference and to constantly learn and evolve.
