Confessions of an Intrapreneur – George Yianni at IoT15

Not every entrepreneur starts in a garage. Some benefit from – and struggle with – the backing of a big brand to build their vision inside an existing organisation

George Yianni has spent more than four years working within Phillips to build the Hue business from scratch and in that time has learnt some valuable lessons about how disruptive innovations works inside big brands and how they can work with smaller start-ups. In this short talk he looks at the key lessons he has learnt about the challenges of intrapreneurship and how he is now applying them to partnering with developers and start-ups outside the company.
