Entrepreneur Project

If you can train a person to be an entrepreneur, you can train them to do anything. This course will cover 8 different core concepts related to the mindset of an entrepreneur: power of choice, recognizing opportunity, ideas into action, pursuit of knowledge, creating wealth, building your brand, creating community, power of persistence. We will be studying the life of Uncle Cleve – an unlikely entrepreneur who owned an Ice House in the South during the Depression. The Ice House Discovery Process uses problem-based, experiential learning through self-directed and peer-to-peer learning. This is a Student Success course that inspires and engages students with the perseverance and determination of an entrepreneurial mindset needed to succeed academically and in life. Course content will include setting up a start up business as a final project.
