More #intrapreneur trends being led by financial services

From this article on the Financial Times (you may find its behind a paywall): Axa chief excited by technological change

The chief executive of Europe’s second-biggest insurer by market capitalisation says that the industry is dealing with technological change unevenly. “That is great news,” he adds, explaining that it allows more nimble operators to win business from those slower to embrace change. “Everyone is threatened . . . and it creates more fluidity in market shares.”
He wants to put Axa at the forefront of the change. A bewildering array of initiatives is already under way — research labs in Silicon Valley and Shanghai, a €200m venture capital fund to invest in external start-ups, a new internal incubator fund called Kamet with €100m to invest, partnerships with LinkedIn and internal data analysis competitions to name just a few.
