Abstract: In contemporary, more and more complicating conditions of the environment, entrepreneurship is perceived as a value per se. It enables functioning and development. It is the basis for innovativeness, competitiveness and efficiency. Therefore, entrepreneurship should characterize individuals (individual entrepreneurship), as well as various kinds of enterprises (corporate, internal and intra- entrepreneurship). It is particularly desired in large corporations in which the resurrection of “entrepreneurial spirit” (implantation of specific entrepreneurial DNA (Arshi, 2012)), among others, owing to formalization, bureaucracy and lack of freedom is very difficult (sometimes even impossible). In this paper particular attention is paid to the dimensions of corporate entrepreneurship development. There are discussed various types of entrepreneurial activities undertaken within large, complex enterprises. For this purpose, the category of entrepreneurial orientation (similar to entrepreneurship, however not identical) is used. It draws attention to how enterprises function, what actions they take to be considered entrepreneurial.
