The Ice House Entrepreneurship program is a revolutionary new online learning program desired to inspire and engage participants in the fundamental aspects of an entrepreneurial mindset.
Recognizing our nation’s need for greater economic participation at all levels of society, the Icehouse Entrepreneurship Program captures and conveys the “mindset” of entrepreneurs who overcame adversity and are now helping lead our economic recovery. The program was created by the Entrepreneurial Learning Initiative and Clifton Taulbert’s Building Community Institute.
“Long before the word ‘entrepreneur’ became popular, the concept still existed.”
These are among the first words Mr. Clifton Taulbert uttered during our chance interview in April, 2008. During our interview, Mr. Taulbert described the entrepreneurial influence and life-lessons he learned from his Uncle Cleve (an unlikely entrepreneur who defied the odds as the owner of the icehouse in Glen Allan, Mississippi during the height of legal segregation.) Today, through a partnership with the Kauffman Foundation, that chance interview is being transformed into a two-part learning initiative designed to inspire and engage America’s youth in the unlimited opportunities that an entrepreneurial mindset can provide.
