Who doesn’t love a little iterating in startup land? It’s in the Lean Bible! And just like we coach our startups to tweak their product and messaging to find their fit in the global connectivity space, we ourselves do the same. We spend the weeks after every Fiterator cohort ends in retros, reviewing each component of the program to decide what we can improve upon to garner success for our startups and our CableLabs members going forward.
While we’ve made a bunch of operational and content tweaks that we will divulge later, our most notable change is that we are moving the program to run from March through June in 2020. This will eliminate the holiday lag that we have experienced with the program ending in November and will also align better with industry budgeting cycles.
This doesn’t mean we get to take a sabbatical for the next year, though. We’ve got a lot of scouting and work to do on the program, including securing the best of the best in mentorship for 2020!

In the meantime, the team is gearing up for the upcoming editions of Innovation Showcase, taking place at the CableLabs Europe Conference in London in April and at the CableLabs Summer Conference in Keystone in August. Applications are now open for Innovation Showcase (click on the big blue button below!) and will shortly open for Fiterator. The UpRamp team will be spending the next three months scouting for startups to join us for these programs - see the list below, and as always, let us know if you're in town so we can meet for a coffee.
It's scouting season at UpRamp, and we're on the hunt for startups that are creating new, innovative solutions for technology and connectivity. Keep in touch with us and get notifications for important application dates by subscribing to our newsletter.
