Cable Center Entrepreneurship Bursary

The SCTE is proud to present two new training bursaries for its members, in conjunction with The Cable Center in the USA, for its new future-focused leadership programme and entrepreneurship academy (TCC-IA). This nine-week life skills programme is specifically aimed at rising stars in the cable industry and will educate and empower industry ‘up and comers’ to be more entrepreneurial with projects and become ‘intrapreneurs’ (envisioning and effecting innovation in their organisation’s corporate structure).

This award includes travel to the Cable Center’s headquarters in Denver (USA) for the initial week’s session followed by online self-study (with chat groups) and a final trip to Denver for graduation. Bursary candidates are expected to actively blog about their experiences during the course and include a report for SCTE’s Broadband Journal and The Cable Center. The Cable Center will underwrite the cost of the course and SCTE will pay for travel and accommodation in the USA.
