The Ice House Entrepreneurship Program is an experiential, problem-based learning program designed to inspire and engage participants in the fundamental aspects of an entrepreneurial mindset. To better understand the Ice House philosophy, Author & ELI Founder Gary Schoeniger traces the insights and principles that led to the creation of the Ice House Entrepreneurship Program in this four-minute Kauffman Sketchbook “Entrepreneurial Mindset” video.
To become certified to facilitate the Ice House Program and learn how to implement within your organization or community, you are invited to participate in the two and a half day facilitator training. Upon completion of the training, participants will:
- Understand the Ice House philosophy and methodology
- Learn how to facilitate the eight life lessons
- Engage in the entrepreneurial process
- Connect the classroom to community by interacting with local entrepreneurs
- Distinguish between program options, delivery, and outcomes
- Create an implementation and action plan to incorporate the entrepreneurial mindset.
- Understand program impact from best practices and use cases.
Training is designed to equip facilitators with the necessary tools and techniques to effectively implement Ice House Programs. Upon successful completion of training, participants will receive an official Entrepreneurial Mindset Facilitator Certificate and have continual digital access to facilitator manuals for all Ice House programs, additional training materials, lesson guides, sample course schedules, marketing materials, and a portion of the course materials (text and video) for each of the three Ice House programs.

About Our Host
Edmonds Community College has a mission to “strengthen our diverse community by helping students access educational and career opportunities in a supportive environment that encourages success, innovation, service, and lifelong learning.” Since 1967, the college has served south Snohomish County as dynamic hub for educational, cultural, and economic opportunity. With over 1,600 employees, the college is the county’s third largest employer. Students represent the demographic diversity of the Lynnwood community (36% racial and ethnic minorities and 35% low-income). Last year, the college awarded over 800 associate transfer degrees and about 1,000 career degrees and certificates. Roughly half of students enrolled at Edmonds Community College are over the age of 25 and require financial assistance to enable them to pursue higher education. Most are the first in their family to attend college, about 15% have a disability, and over 1/3 have families to support.
