Ice House is a 10-week entrepreneurship training course held in the Pikes Peak Library District, East Library – open for students AND parents! Starting March 3rd, this course is led by successful entrepreneur and homeschool dad Matthew Hexter. Learn more below.
Do you want to learn to be an entrepreneur?
- Have you ever wanted to start your own business?
- What does it take to be an entrepreneur?
- Can you learn to be an entrepreneur, spotting an opportunity where others see nothing, or do you have to be born with a certain “it”?
The Ice House Entrepreneurship Program helps students develop an entrepreneurial mindset while immersing them in real-world entrepreneurial experiences. Over the span of 10 weeks, students will be introduced to life-changing principles, hands-on activities, and individuals who are walking the entrepreneurship journey. This training will end in a capstone project in which students will utilize the Opportunity Discovery Canvas to put into practice all they have learned.
Much like homeschooling, starting a business is an outside-the-box adventure. Homeschooling parents and their children (ages 12 and older) are encouraged to attend this specially presented Ice House Entrepreneurship Program together. With relevant activities, students of all ages will understand the process that enables entrepreneurs with limited resources to transform an idea into a sustainable success.
Begins March 3rd in Colorado Springs.
Matthew Hexter, the Ice House program facilitator, is a homeschool father of six. They are currently involved in H.O.M.E and LAMS. Matthew has a heart for homeschoolers and loves the idea of helping families learn about entrepreneurship together.
