Are you an Intrapreneur?
An intrapreneur drives innovation and harnesses creativity to transform an idea into a profitable venture, while operating within the organizational environment.
While an entrepreneur is defined as a person who establishes a new business with an innovative idea or concept, an intrapreneur undertakes innovations on behalf of their organization. Both entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs share similar qualities like conviction, creativity, zeal and insight, and both are instrumental in driving innovation.
The Cable Center’s Intrapreneurship Academy (TCC-IA) provides rising stars in the cable industry with the skills and mindset to become intrapreneurs, to envision and effect change, and to innovate within their organizations’ existing corporate structures. Innovation, as defined by TCC-IA, can apply to processes, products and programs, as well as technologies.
The program is open mid-career (manager, senior manager, new directors) cable industry professionals (MVPDs, vendors or content providers) from any department or discipline – both people managers and individual contributors.
TCC-IA is looking for candidates who display intrapreneurial behaviors and attributes. These include curiosity, a zeal for creating something new, passion for their work and a penchant for asking questions.
A core tenet of the curriculum is that innovation is a process; and this process can be learned, practiced and honed. The curriculum will guide Intrapreneurs through the steps of the innovation process. This 9-week program combines in-person, and online facilitated self-study, where Intrapreneurs will work through real-world projects as they complete each module.
Intrapreneurs will partner with a Sponsor within their organization to help them navigate roadblocks and provide practical guidance. [DOWNLOAD SPONSOR DESCRIPTION AND ROLE]
