IceHouse Student Success LogoAn entrepreneurial mindset is a framework for thinking and acting that can empower anyone to succeed, no matter their chosen path. Inspired by the life story of Pulitzer nominee Clifton Taulbert and the life-changing in influence of an unlikely entrepreneur, the Ice House Entrepreneurship Program is an experiential, problem-based learning program designed to empower learners by exposing them to entrepreneurial thinking while immersing them in entrepreneurial experiences that will enable them to develop entrepreneurial skills.

Learn from Experienced, Real World Entrepreneurs

Drawing from eight core concepts, the program enables participants to learn directly from the firsthand experience of real-world entrepreneurs who share their knowledge and experience throughout the course. Participants who complete this course will learn to:

  • Identify and evaluate opportunities that others overlook
  • Transform a simple idea into a sustainable success
  • Embrace an entrepreneurial mindset as a life-skill
  • Identify and overcome self-limiting beliefs
  • Interact with local entrepreneurs for critical guidance and support

Supported by video case studies of real-world, unlikely entrepreneurs, the program draws upon eight fundamental concepts of an entrepreneurial mindset derived from the companion text, Who Owns the Ice House? Eight Life Lessons from an Unlikely Entrepreneur.
