FAQs about the Entrepreneurial Mindset class featuring the Ice House Entrepreneurship program.

Q. Is Entrepreneurial Mindset class a one-time class or a series?

A. Entrepreneurial Mindset is a series of 14 to 15 weekly classes.

Q. What if I may have to miss some of the classes?

A. Certainly, perfect attendance is not required. Past participants have indicated receiving great value from the class even when they’ve missed several sessions. We plan to record the virtual session so that if missed, registered participants can view any missed sessions at a later time.

Q. What is the content of class and how is it different than any other class?

A.  Entrepreneurs have a certain way of looking at life and solving the problems that arise not only for them but for their customers (or employers.) The objective of the class is to learn how they think and become better problem solvers. This can’t be written in a textbook and if you ask entrepreneurs how they think they won’t be able to give you an answer. If you listen to their stories about how they created their businesses, you can begin to understand how they think and how you can apply the principles to your own life.)

The stories come from a combination of video content of entrepreneurs from around the United States in a series called the Ice House Entrepreneurship program, and real area entrepreneurs from around our area we bring to class, nearly one each week. As we listen to the stories, we begin to realize that in many ways all entrepreneurs think in similar ways. This Entrepreneurial thinking gives them confidence to better meet the challenges in their personal, academic and business lives.

Participants are asked to view an average of 60 minutes of Ice House videos outside of class and provide some discussion questions to share with the class as they view the content.

These two 4- minute videos summarize the Ice House program.

The Ice House Entrepreneurship Program

Although our class is not exactly like the video, you’ll get to hear snippits of some of the entrepreneurs in the video program.

Kauffman Sketchbook-"Entrepreneurial Mindset"

In this video, Ice House founder, Gary Schoeniger (who will be a virtual guest during one of the class sessions) explains why entrepreneurial education needs to be different than traditional business education and how it all should begin with a change in mindset.

Q. I’m sick of Zoom meetings. Will I find value if I elect to participate in the virtual option?

A. We believe participants will find value in the virtual sessions for three reasons. The first is the content itself, being inspiring and about changing mindset is much more interesting than the content of the average business or class Zoom meeting. The second reason is that we’re going to present the host Zoom view of the classroom in a “TV show-like” fashion using multiple cameras and microphones to enhance the experience. Third, we’ll use the Zoom feature of breakout rooms so that small groups within the class can develop discussion topics to bring back to the full group.
