In past decades the majority of intrapreneurship research refers to the process of improving organizational profitability, thus enhancing the competitive position within large organizations, while largely ignoring such value to smaller companies (Antonic & Hirsch, 2003; Garvin & Levesque, 2006; Ibrahim, 2016; Kocjancic & Bojnec, 2013). The purpose of this article is to stress the importance of practicing entrepreneurship, known as intrapreneurship, within the context small businesses. It is our belief that small businesses, like their larger counterparts, must evolve within a highly competitive environment where innovation is vital. We argue that intrapreneurship is not exclusively for large firms.
