Ice House Entrepreneurship Program

When: Wednesday, June 29, 2016 - 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Where: Penrose Library - 20 North Cascade at Pine Room

Entrepreneurship is more than an academic discipline and reaches far beyond the concept of traditional business creation and small business management. Entrepreneurship is a mindset; a framework for thinking and acting that can empower anyone to succeed. It is a mindset that can empower ordinary people to accomplish the extraordinary.

The Ice House Entrepreneurship Program is designed to inspire and engage participants in the fundamental aspects of an entrepreneurial mindset as an essential life skill. The program draws upon eight fundamental concepts of entrepreneurial thought and process derived from the companion text, Who Owns the Ice House? Eight Life Lessons from an Unlikely Entrepreneur. Each lesson contains video case studies featuring a variety of real-world “unlikely” entrepreneurs who have overcome challenges by embracing the core concepts of an entrepreneurial mindset. The program also provides for experiential learning through the process of identifying problems, finding solutions, and making connections beyond the classroom.

To register, visit here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/day-series-ice-house-entrepreneurship-program-tickets-21114153000. $250 material fee required. Need based scholarships available upon request (email info@elimindset.com). To learn more about the overall effort, visit www.IceHouseCOS.com.
