Startup Canada Podcast: Paul Gaspar on global intrapreneurs

Paul Gaspar

“Rockstar intrapreneur” Paul Gaspar says there is no better time than right now for Canadian startups to start thinking global.

As the Director of Small Business at UPS Canada, Paul takes a cue from startup entrepreneurs and strives to think outside of the box when managing both internal operations and external communications. His intraprenurial attitude mixed with a passion for educating entrepreneurs on the importance of a robust supply chain and the benefits of going international, has made UPS Canada a strong supporter of startups and small businesses.

“To me, (intrapreneurship) is internally running my own little business. It’s being that person who is… introducing something outside of the box and challenging the larger organization that I work for to change and do something differently.”

In this week’s #StartupPodcast, Paul, who is one of Canada’s leading experts in global entrepreneurship, gives insights on how to develop a global growth strategy and offers tips on how to leverage partnerships to strengthen your company’s supply chains to grow your business.
