A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
noun: An employee who works as an entrepreneur within an established company, having the freedom to take risks and act independently.
A blend of intra- (within) + entrepreneur, from French entreprendre (to undertake), from Latin inter- (between) + prendere (to take). Ultimately from the Indo-European root ghend-/ghed- (to seize or to take), which also gave us pry, prey, spree, reprise, surprise, osprey, prison, impregnable, impresa, pernancy, and prise. Earliest documented use: 1978.
“‘Don’t change companies, change the company you’re in,’ advises one social intrapreneur.”
