Question about English (UK)


1. an employee of a large corporation who is given freedom and financial support to create new products, services, systems, etc., and does not have to follow the corporation's usual routines or protocols.
Many companies—including global brands like IBM, eBay, and Facebook—focus on developing an “intrapreneur” culture. An intrapreneur brings the creativity and drive often associated with startups to larger, established companies.
-- Wes Gay, "Why Big Companies Should Act Small to Engage Millennials," Forbes, November 14, 2016
Origin of intrapreneur
Intrapreneur dates from the 1970s and is formed on the analogy of entrepreneur, which entered English in the mid-19th century. The element intra- is a direct loan from the Latin adverb and preposition intrā “inside, within,” which later in Latin was also used as a prefix. Entre is a French preposition and prefix meaning “between, among” and derives from the Latin adverb, preposition, and prefix inter “between, among.” Entre- is obsolete in forming new words in English, inter- being used instead.

Is the English here correct?
