Well if you think of it, you can actually formulate your own ideas on what is going to be the next “big thing”. Personally, I would like to see those future cars in the movie, flying and having their hyper-drive. This might sound silly today but we might not know the possibility considering the evolution of today’s technologies.
As I searched through the net, I stumbled on the word: INTRAPRENEURSHIP
According to wikepedia.com: “Intrapreneurship is the acts of behaving like an entrepreneur while working within a large organization.”
“Corporate entrepreneurship and innovation will be the next big thing for the next 10 years”
– Steve Blank
If Steve Blank says something, innovation-minded folks listen. In a recent interview, he said:
“Here’s a big idea that everybody’s been missing because it just happened. It’s the fact that large companies are now turning to startup companies and startup ideas. Really, the whole lean startup thing is being adopted by large corporations, and no business school has figured that out yet. Corporate entrepreneurship and innovation will be the next big thing for the next 10 years.”
Nowadays, conferences are held to communicate and discuss intrapreneurship, it became a trend. In fact, there was this academy known as ACADEMY FOR CORPORATE ENTREPRENEURSHIP or AFCE which helps build and execute tailor made intrapreneurship programs that fuel innovation for your organization.

There’s nothing I love more than thinking, talking & writing about the future. Here’s a list of some things I’m excited to see develop in the near future & over the longer-term, along with my predictions for when each will start to happen.
Next 2-5 years:
- I’ll start here because it’s the obvious choice. Google Glass, mobile apps, etc. A ton of chatter, but certainly also a ton of opportunity.
- We still have way too many cords, cables, and electronic devices that need to be physically plugged in or connected. This doesn’t need to be the case, and is a big enough pain in the ass that the market should step in soon. The technology already exists. I don’t know all the ins & outs, but this seems like a big opportunity not many people are talking about.
- No nano-material is thinner or stronger than this stuff. We just need to figure out how to affix it to other materials and an entire new world opens right up.
- I still can’t believe this hasn’t taken off in the US. With rapid evolution of mobile phones, there is such a big opportunity for replacing money transactions with either an existing, or a new form of electronic currency on a very wide basis. Of course there are lots of examples of both alternative currencies and mobile payment systems today – but they are all still based around credit cards, bank accounts, etc. What we need is a whole new protocol. No one seems to have hit upon a business model that is universal and popular enough to displace physical money. And whatever emerges could replace a lot of conventional advertising as well.
e/free market catch up. Plenty has been said about this already. The technology is already here, but it will take time to let the legislation/infrastructur
