Explanation:
English is a very daring language. That's why it's so creative. We should respond in Spanish with equal or grater creativity. So how about "intrapresarios"?
Think about it and good luck!

Explanation:
There is an obvious parallel with "entrepreneurship", (with an "e"), the word used to allude to self-made "empresarios" or business owners.
With this neologism that you ran into, I believe they're referring to creative people, initiative-takers within an organization -as opposed to a its top.

I'd leave the word in English, between quotes.

intrapreneurship; iniciativa empresarial intra-corporativa


Explanation:
Hi Ximena,

Wonders never cease, at least not where coining business neologisms is concerned!

I found a nice page on the SBA site, that gives, as an expansion of *intrapreneurship*, *intra-corporate entrepreneurship*. So if you want to coin your own phrase in Spanish, how aboutsomething like: *iniciativa empresarial intra-corporativa*?

Here's the SBA site in question:
http://entrepreneurs.about.com/smallbusiness/entrepreneurs/l...

Otherwise, keep the English word (which is what has been done on the 12 Spanish-language pages I located on Alta Vista):
