Kauffman Foundation-Supported Online Entrepreneurship
Learning Curriculum Launches Today
The Ice House Entrepreneurship program teaches the unlimited opportunities of the entrepreneurial mindset through example

A new, inspiring online education program designed to engage students in the unlimited opportunities that an entrepreneurial mindset can provide launches today. Backed by the support of the Kauffman Foundation, the Ice House Entrepreneurship Program is an interactive online learning program that enables participants to learn from the firsthand experiences of successful real-world entrepreneurs.

Created through a collaboration with the Entrepreneurial Learning Initiative and Pulitzer Prize nominee Clifton Taulbert, the Ice House Entrepreneurship Program is a two-part learning project:

The Book: Based on the personal experience of author Clifton Taulbert, Who Owns the Icehouse? is a powerful and compelling story that draws on the entrepreneurial influence and eight essential life-lessons Taulbert gained from his Uncle Cleve, an unlikely entrepreneur in the segregated South.

The Course: Based on the eight life-lessons described in the book, the interactive online program combines narrated chalkboard presentations with video interviews and case studies featuring modern-day examples of those who, like Taulbert’s Uncle Cleve, have triumphed over hardship and adversity by embracing an entrepreneurial mindset.
In addition to the narrated chalkboard presentations, each lesson includes individual learning assessments, discussion topics and assignments that are designed to maximize comprehension while encouraging real-world application of the core concepts.
