Intrapreneurship Academy: Tomorrow's Innovators Start Here.

The Intrapreneurship Academy at The Cable Center gives cable industry rising leaders the tools to become intrapreneurs by teaching the process of innovation and applying it to a real-world project within their companies. Participants engage with an instructor, each other, and a company sponsor so they can master the skills to drive innovation within their roles. This program is motivating for the intrapreneurs and a great way for companies to invest in the future.

This unique 8-week program is structured with both in-person and online study. There is an in-person 2-day kickoff followed by 6 weeks of online modules, concluding with a 2-day in-person capstone.

There are two versions of this class: IA and IA – Company Track.

1. In IA, the class is comprised of participants from a variety of organizations and disciplines. Intrapreneurs are guided through the steps of the innovation process, advancing individual projects from problem definition through innovation business plan. Along with attaining a practical toolkit for innovation, one of the most beneficial aspects to IA is the opportunity to learn from, and learn about, others in the industry.
