What past participants are saying
“The whole hands-on experience in innovating new ideas combined with great talks from veterans like Phil and Scott was truly an experience to hold on to.”
“I found the tools and speakers provided excellent context to the practical exercises presented during the Innovation Boot Camp. Moreover, actually hypothesizing a solution to a problem, conceiving possible solutions, ideating, then pitching a concept made for an excellent practicum.”
“Great presentations and speakers both Cable Labs staff and external. I liked the real life activities and motivational speakers trying to bridge theory and reality. Well prepared course. Great Job.”
