IMPOSTER! Startup Founder or Intrapreneur?

I started working with a small team on a product in Dec. 2014 . We did customer discovery, idea validation and prototyping. We identified a business model, and we Made a Thing.

But I don't consider myself a startup founder, for one reason. I took home a steady salary (with 401(k) match) the whole time.

Intrapreneurs launch businesses from within the shelter of a parent, and as such may not feel they belong to the tribe of startup founders, they're not 'true entrepreneurs'.

This presentation will cover the murky areas of networking, self- and product-promotion to help fledgling intrapreneurs balance what's best for themselves, their projects and the corporate hand that feeds them.
