In The Inside innovator, Gump shines a light on the efforts that occur behind the walls of almost every organization. This inspiring yet practical primer focuses on creating value through innovation and growth within larger organizations-from global business titans to local market leaders; from charitable nonprofits to government entities; from educational institutions to informal community groups and beyond; these are the places of the in-house innovators, the explorers, the intrapreneurs.

This hands-on guide is the playbook Gump wishes he'd had years ago while he and his teammates experimented, problem-solved, and ultimately learned how to be successful intrapreneurs. Full of insights from industry leaders as well as essential tools that can be applied practically-this primer will help readers to achieve more, build stronger relationships, and increase personal fulfillment through intrapreneurship.

"Ther are already thousands of compelling books about the entrepreneurs of the world-but what about the innovators who want to make a change in their larger organizations? The intrapreneurs. This book is for them," Gump said.

The author interviewed a range of seasoned intrapreneurs for the book, and has woven their observations into the text. He goes deeper not only into how to deliver on direct business objectives, but also to contribute to and strengthen the broader organization in the process.

To Gump, having intrapreneurs on your team is essential for sustained success. Here's why:

  • Intrapreneurs push established organizations to adapt.
  • Intrapreneurs train the next generation of leaders.
  • Intrapreneurs create transformative growth opportunities for entrepreneurs.
  • Intrapreneurs drive value creation within the organization.

The Inside Innovator is a powerful tool for successful intrapreneurs across industries, and for people at varying stages of their careers. For more information, visit

Praise for The Inside Innovator

"Louis Gump was one of the first people to talk to me about expanding access to information by giving people news on their mobile devices. While it is commonplace now, at the time it was transformative. He brings those same types of insights in his new book, The Inside Innovator. He also demystifies the term 'intrapreneurship' and makes the process accessible to people who wish to excel as leaders within larger companies. Whether you are a neuroscientist like me or in a totally different discipline, this book can help you harness your natural talents."
