WIRED TO WIN:ENTREPRENEURS OF THE AMERICAN CABLE INDUSTRY
    Wired to Win, a book describing the cable industry’s Entrepreneurs Club, is presented in conjunction with Gustave Hauser, the Entrepreneurs Club and The Cable Center. First published in 2003 and written by Kathi Brown, Wired to Win honors the members of the Entrepreneurs Club, a group of innovators who played a major role in shaping the cable industry into the dynamic force it is today.

    Still active today, the cable telecommunications industry’s Entrepreneurs Club began in the fall of 1988 as a way for mid-sized cable operators to get together to talk about regulatory and operating issues and mutual interests. The membership has grown and changed over the years and members have sold their businesses or retired, but the group continues to gather to discuss issues facing the industry such as operational issues, new technology and the financial climate and most importantly to enjoy each other’s friendship.
