Originally, the word Entrepreneur derives from French and is composed of the words "entre" and "prendre", which means "to undertake".
Literally translated, entrepreneurs are self-employed businessmen/women and company founders with a high sense of responsibility and willingness to take risks. In addition, entrepreneurs are creative and able to innovate independently.
Good grades do not make you a good intrapreneur. IDEAS DO.
The term Intrapreneur is composed of the English words “intra-corporate” for company-internal and “Entrepreneur” for businessmen/women.
Intrapreneurs are people who act like corporate entrepreneurs. Intrapreneurship thus describes the entrepreneurial behavior of employees.
There are many different stereotypes in the world for woman and men work. Society have thoughts which jobs are for women and which are for men, but is it right?
Here we have “Out of the Box” and we are going to explain that everyone is free to choose what they want to work with, what they feel and what they think, what is the best for them.
Nowadays we have women who are working as photographers, truck drivers, taxidermists, butchers, firefighters, geologists etc. and they are very successful.
Also we have men working as hair dressers, make-up artists, pedicure and manicure artists, nail artists etc.
“Leave me work what I want to work”
“I work what I want to work.”
Why did we do the interviews?
#Bridge!t share inspiring stories that can be a motivation for Entrepreneurs-To-BE, who want to do something ''out of the box''.
#Bridge!t want to tell people out there, that everyone can be an entrepreneur, encouraged through a strong network of like-minded people. That’s why we had Interviews with inspiring, innovative and special persons.
We wanted to highlight certain entrepreneurs for the students. Not the famous „big ones“ like Steve Jobs, but the entrepreneurs among us – in our hometown or even our university. Especially female entrepreneurs and students with their own businesses are often invisble and underrepresented in our society.
Take the chance to get to know them and you will find inspiration to follow your own ideas.
