An intrapreneur (as defined by Investopedia) is an inside entrepreneur, or an entrepreneur within a company, who uses entrepreneurial skills without incurring the risks associated with those activities. I talk with Devonne Wilhoit of American Transmission Company. Devonne is an innovative Information Technology (IT) Professional with over 22 years’ experience. She currently works as a Consultant Business Relationship Manager building strong collaborative teams, facilitating communication, and solidifying partnerships between IT and business functional areas.
