Stafford and Pawnee County Economic Development in association with the Network Kansas E-Community Partnership, announces the Ice House Entrepreneurship Program will be offered in Larned and St. John. Sessions will be held 6:00-9:00pm on Wednesdays starting March 20th in Larned and ending May 8th in St. John with a program fee of $100 for adults, and $50 for high school students. The goal of the course is to teach participants to develop an entrepreneurial mindset.
Taught by Lea Ann Seiler, a certified Ice House facilitator, this interactive 8-week program provides practical entrepreneurial lessons through first-hand experiences of successful, real-life entrepreneurs. Based on the book, Who Owns the Ice House, this curriculum consists of video interviews and case studies along with individual assignments, assessments, and discussion topics. This popular course is offered only a handful of times per year across the state and Stafford and Pawnee County Economic Development have brought this course to their communities for the 1st time under this partnership.
"We hope this course will expose you to a new way of thinking, recognize opportunities, ignite your ambition and foster the habits that will enable you to succeed. Those who complete the program will learn how to develop the mindset skills that enable you to recognize and evaluate opportunities regardless of your chosen path." - Shelley Paasch, Ice House facilitator.
A 50% rebate will be given to participants that attend seven out of the eight total classes.
