  • Our Belief

    We are huge believers in the power of Intrapreneurship. We believe that small teams of inspired individuals given the right resources, tools and guidance can turn innovative ideas into successful businesses. This belief has been backed up by the solid impact we have made on the business as well as people over the past 3 years.

    Our Approach

    We give our employees the skillsets they need to build a validated business case on top of their technical ideas. We instill into them the mindset they need to think & act like entrepreneurs, as if they are the CEOs of their own companies. Lastly, we give them the connections and the resources they need in the ecosystem to continuously iterate and advance their ideas in a highly accelerated manner.

    What we do?

    We are an in-house accelerator of business ideas at Intel China. We use Lean Startup methodology to turn a technical idea into a validated business case that a business unit (BU) can bring to market. We are a platform to build minimum viable products, test & validate new business ideas in a lean & iterative way and help our BUs de-risk new product/ business launches.

  • 加速器|Accelerator

    GrowthX Accelerator is a 16-week action-learning program and consists of 8 individual sprints. Each sprint focuses on one particular aspect of business. A sprint is divided into half a day of group workshop and half a day of 1:1 coaching sessions called EIR (Entrepreneur In Residence) Check-Ins. We run 2 batches of acceleration per year with 5 teams forming each cohort.


    In addition to training, mentorship and connections in the ecosystem, GrowthX provides seed funding to the teams in order to build a solid MVP (Minimum Viable Product). The outcome of the accelerator is a validated business case that we can bring to the BU and help them de-risk creating & launching new businesses.

    Twice a year, we call goes out to all Intel China employees to submit their business plans to have a chance to enter the accelerator. Each batch receives between 30- 60 ideas. We invite top 15-20 ideas to a 2-day bootcamp where we’ll help them turn their vision into a crisp business pitch.


    10-12 pitches make it to the “Selection Day” where the founders pitch their ideas to a jury drawn from various business leaders from across Intel China as well as external industry experts. In a week or two from selection day we announce the 5 teams that will form the batch of cohort.

  • 加速项目|Accelerated Projects

    Over the past 3 years, we have accelerated more than 40 projects. We do not have a set theme or criteria for categories that we accelerate. However, we have seen a natural tendency for projects to fall under the areas of strategic bets & growth for Intel especially- AI, FPGA, Vision Processing, new PC usages & Data Center technologies etc.
