Ice House Entrepreneurship Programs

How do we engage students and workers to take ownership, become self-directed, and create value by solving problems? Entrepreneurs are some of the most self-directed, effective problem-solvers in our communities today. ELI’s Ice House Entrepreneurship Programs use real world, unlikely entrepreneurs to demonstrate the power of human agency that is derived through learning to think and act like an entrepreneur.

In the 1950s Mississippi Delta, there was one man who saw opportunity where others did not - an unlikely entrepreneur named Cleve Mormon - the man who owned the Ice House. In every community, there are “Ice House Entrepreneurs”— ordinary people who have no particular advantage over others, yet somehow they manage to succeed. What sets them apart? What can we learn from them?

Join ELI to learn about the Ice House Entrepreneurship Programs! Ice House is an experiential, problem-based learning program designed to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset in individuals, organizations, and communities. The program empowers learners by exposing them to entrepreneurial thinking while immersing them in entrepreneurial experiences that will develop creativity and critical thinking, effective problem finding and solving, and teamwork - 21st century workforce skills that will enable them to succeed no matter their chosen path.

Participants in this session will receive a copy of Who Owns the Ice House? Eight Life Lessons from an Unlikely Entrepreneur.

Learning Objectives:

     Learn how Ice House impacts individuals, organizations, and communities

     Understand the Ice House philosophy, concepts, and delivery model

     Differentiate between the Ice House Programs and intended audiences for delivery
