The Ice House Entrepreneurship program is designed to inspire and engage participants in the fundamental aspects of the entrepreneurial mindset.

The Ice House Entrepreneurship program is designed to inspire and engage participants in the fundamental aspects of the entrepreneurial mindset and the limitless opportunities such a mindset can offer. Learners are immersed in entrepreneurial experiences that not only enable them to develop this specific skill set, but adopt a specific way of thinking.

Sponsored by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and created by the Entrepreneurial Learning Initiative, the Ice House Entrepreneurship program has garnered international attention from academic and economic development organizations. A short “sketchbook” on the program is available here.

Participants may range in experience from newly minted young adult entrepreneurs with little or no experience to longtime workforce professionals. All should have a willingness and interest in exploring and learning about the entrepreneurial mindset.

Potential students must be referred by an entrepreneur support organization. The applicant referral should be completed online and emailed to nisha.avey@nebraska.gov.
