An Event, A Platform, A Community

A place for sharing and collaborating

The UpRamp Community is where CableLabs members share their outside innovation work. In doing so, they’re exposing the community to new startups and partnerships, developing new relationships, sharing best practices, overcoming obstacles, brainstorming, and seeking collaboration opportunities. All of this happens in our monthly meetings and bi-annual events, in addition to a community Slack channel and collaboration platform.

The Game Changers

This community is made up of the people changing cable’s direction by working with others to invent the future.

The UpRamp Community is made up of those that lead:

 

  • Innovation & Emerging Tech
  • Startup, University, Thought Leader Engagement
  • Growth, Strategy & Development
  • Ventures

Advisory Group

The UpRamp Community is led by an advisory group of eight members and Lisa Schwab, Director of Strategic Growth Engagement at CableLabs.
