GOProdigii and ELI Enter Agreement to Combine the Power of the Entrepreneurial Mindset With Technology to Innovate New Solutions to ESG Problems


CLEVELAND, December 8, 2020 (Newswire) – GOProdigii, LLC. and The Entrepreneurial Learning Initiative announced today that they have entered into an agreement to collaborate on building a unique network of “Ice House Entrepreneurs” focused on helping to solve environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) problems such as climate change, clean water, and inequality of opportunity based on race.  “ELI is excited to coordinate with GOProdigii on this initiative. Our work focuses on training anyone how to develop an entrepreneurial mindset so that they can help join in solving the most pressing issues of our time. The ecosystem partners that GOProdigii can bring to the table should help greatly expand the reach and impact of this work,” said ELI President Rob Herndon.

ELI’s Ice House Entrepreneurship Program has already been shown to energize innovation in a broad variety of settings where the direct application of entrepreneurial thinking and processes can be used in problem solving.  Nearly 2,700 individuals have been trained to facilitate their Ice House programs from 47 U.S. states and 27 other countries. These programs combined with their professional development workshops are helping to shape change around the world with colleges and universities, high schools, state and local governments, nonprofit foundations and charitable organizations, public libraries, corporations, and correctional environments.

ELI’s entrepreneurial mindset programs draw on the wisdom gained by entrepreneur and author, Clifton Taulbert, from his Uncle Cleve chronicled by Taulbert in his Pulitzer Prize winning book Who Owns the Ice House? Eight Life Lessons from an Unlikely Entrepreneur.  In this book, co-authored by ELI Founder, Gary Schoeniger, Taulbert’s journey is traced from his early life in the Mississippi Delta at the height of legal segregation to being recognized by TIME Magazine as “one of our nation’s most outstanding emerging entrepreneurs.”  The ELI entrepreneurial mindset programs capture the entrepreneurial life lessons learned from Taulbert and hundreds of other entrepreneurs that can empower anyone to succeed.

GOProdigii’s Founder and Chief Strategist, Andrew Tasker said that with this agreement, “we are combining the power of the IP and resources of ELI as the world’s leader in entrepreneurial mindset education, training, and professional development with GoProdigii’s ESG technology innovation platform to unleash the power of market capitalism, creating lasting change for the collective good of people and the planet.”
