Make your innovation programs sustainable and scalable.

Become an innovation coach.

The Academy for Corporate Entrepreneurship (AfCE) transforms Intrapreneurs or Innovation Managers into internal Innovation Mentors. Various Train the Trainer (TTT) programs are available to qualified participants so that they can inherit and practice the mentoring skills required to be able to further mentor Intrapreneurs and Innovation Managers on projects during various innovation phases and at different levels of capability.

Mentors In Training (MITs)

Train the Trainer (TTT) programs focus on developing qualified Intrapreneurs or Innovation Managers who will be known as Mentors in Training (MIT’s). The program is usually delivered in 2 steps: 1) Information Download and 2) Live Implementation, where the MITs will learn directly from experienced AfCE mentors during real implementations of the selected program. TTT can currently be applied to the following programs for participants who have successfully participated in the respective program.

For Intrapreneurs:

1. Ideation & Team Formation Day
2. Kickbox
3. Kick Off Event

4. Corporate Start-up Accelerator & Prototype Fund
5. Incubation Sprints & Developer Fund

Client Success:

After running 2 cohorts of the Corporate Start-up Accelerator and observing that 50% of participants performed extremely well, Migros decided to further develop 6 MIT’s. These Intrapreneurs have been instrumental in supporting further innovation initiatives to a much broader audience thanks to the dramatic reduction in costs due to the MIT’s “stepping in” for AfCE mentors.

Bayer views the TTT program as a method to further enhance its existing 800 Innovation Ambassador network and 80 Innovation coaches so they can fully support corporate start-up teams to go from Ideation to Incubation. MIT’s therefore allow Bayer to offer corporate start-up teams more end to end support, rather than just ad-hoc workshops or generic advice.
