Most books about high-tech innovation are written by outsiders looking in. This book is written from a unique perspective: a software engineer joins with his teammates to continually create new technology for handling the world's information. The ideas described in this book have produced well over 140 patent applications and generated billions of dollars in product revenue.
Innovate with Influence highlights the rise of the intrapreneur in the last decade. Innovation at large corporations has continued to flourish, while funding and starting entrepreneurial businesses is harder than ever. Successful intrapreneurs leverage the resources found at large corporations to bring their ideas to market. The habits of intrapreneurs, which are highlighted in the book, run against the grain of conventional thinking.
This book offers a framework for college grads and young employees to pursue the option of becoming an intrapreneur as a way of advancing their unique ideas.
Electronic and printed copies of the book can be ordered at Booklocker.com.
Innovate with Influence is also carried by Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
