WHAT IS IDEAPRENEURSHIP?

At HCL, innovation is not just another word, it’s part of our organizational heritage and DNA - a journey that began in 1976 and continues to power us ahead even today. The culture at HCL Technologies – ideapreneurship™ as we call it - makes the license to ideate a distinctive organizational capability. We see a grassroot movement that has rallied the entire organization behind this innovation agenda, in a manner that leads to relationships that deliver value beyond the contract to our customers. ideapreneurship™ - is based on the fundamental belief of inverting the organizational pyramid and engaging, enabling and empowering the front line. This is because we understand that they are best placed to appreciate and understand the customers’ business and shape the roadmap to enhance the ‘value zone’ created in every interaction they have.

Ideapreneurs don’t run after success. Their quest for answers leads them there. Watch the video.

Intellectual Property monetization (IPM) is a unique platform that encourages ideapreneurs to submit innovative ideas which they believe can be patented. The objective is to create a unified Patent Policy under the Ideapreneurship umbrella to reward and recognize employees for their work which they believe to be patentable and thereby participate in achieving patent status.

IPM defines IP opportunities that showcase Innovation as our core DNA and creates product design thinking for new products and platforms. Employees are rewarded at two stages, initially when the patent is filed and again when the patent is granted. Through this platform, the ideapreneurs have constantly innovated, ideated and have filed for more than 200 patents since 2015.
