VINCI teams: time to apply for the 2023 Intrapreneurs program

Leonard is recruiting a new cohort of intrapreneurs in the fields of construction, mobility, energy and real estate. All VINCI Group employees are invited to participate: you have until October 1st 2022 to apply. Join the new cohort!

Leonard’s Intrapreneurs program is aimed at the Group’s employees with a proposal for an innovative project linked to the transformation of our activities, and more generally of cities and infrastructures. The environment, safety, and productivity are key challenges for our business lines. The Intrapreneurs program nurtures the spirit of innovation within VINCI to tackle these challenges creatively!

Incubation and acceleration: from idea to market

This two-phase program aims to train project leaders in entrepreneurial methodology, to help them go from idea to market. An initial 4-month “incubation” phase challenges the initial idea, and the relevance of the project is validated with the help of internal sponsors. During this phase, the project leaders devote 20% of their time to the program.

At the end of this phase, a committee decides whether the project will move on to the so-called “acceleration” phase, during which the project leaders devote themselves full-time to the project for 4 months. The objective of this phase is to test the project’s structuring key hypotheses by experimenting with a first version of the offer on the market (a Minimum Viable Product, MVP) with the strategic, operational and financial support of the internal sponsors. This phase ends with a seed committee that decides on the outcome of the project and confirms the commitment of the sponsors and intrapreneurs to launch and commercially deploy the new activity. This launch can take different forms: creation of a new offer, creation of a new business unit, integration within an existing business unit, or spin-off.
