    I found his way of thinking about jobs as “solving problems” to be an refreshing take on the question “what do you want to do?” He found a new job because his old one didn’t solve the problems that interested him. I would like to hear more about how UNICEF creates a safe environment for taking risks? Is that as possible in large for-profit organizations?

    “Big organizations generally reach a point where the inherent structures are set up to mitigate risk.” I loved hearing Rajesh Anandan’s thoughtful reflections on intrapreneurship in large, social purpose organizations. How might we re-open spaces for risk-taking and creativity within such organizations? Anandan speaks to a couple paths: the alternate “lab” within a company like Skunkworks, or finding one’s tribe of like-minded colleagues to get things done with. He also points to the potential for intrapreneurial impact, namely, the scale of UNICEF USA.

    I would love to hear more about how UNICEF Ventures approaches incubation – how Ideas “growing up” in an ecosystem with that kind of reach can be poised for wider adoption or spread. I’d also love to see more pieces at Unreasonable.is about “intrapreneurship” and entrepreneurial cultures within established organizations.
