Ice House Entrepreneurship Program

May 2 @ 6:30 pm - May 30 @ 8:30 pm

Learn the fundamental aspects of an entrepreneurial mindset as an
essential life skill!

The Davidson community is invited to take part in free entrepreneurial mindset training this May!

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. The program also provides experiential learning through the process of identifying problems, finding solutions, and making connections beyond the classroom.

By the end of the program participants will be able to:

  • Establish and develop entrepreneurial attitudes, behaviors, and skills
  • Understand and experience the entrepreneurial process
  • Identify social and situational factors that encourage or inhibit entrepreneurial behavior
  • Identify, evaluate, and validate opportunities in ambiguous, real-world circumstances
