Eight Life Lessons from an Unlikely Entrepreneur will guide you through this course. Based on over a decade of research, each lesson contains video case studies featuring various real-world, “unlikely” entrepreneurs who have embraced the core concepts of an entrepreneurial mindset. Ice House is designed to empower learners by exposing them to entrepreneurial thinking while immersing them in entrepreneurial experiences that will enable them to develop creativity and critical thinking, practical problem solving, communication, teamwork, and other entrepreneurial skills – skills that will allow them to succeed regardless of their chosen path.

Upon completion of the program, participants will become empowered and engaged by:

  • Developing entrepreneurial attitudes, behaviors, and skills.
  • Identifying social and situational factors that encourage or inhibit entrepreneurial behavior.
  • Identifying, evaluating, and validating opportunities in ambiguous, real-world circumstances.
  • Identifying and interacting with entrepreneurs who provide critical guidance and ongoing support.
