Take a step towards becoming an entrepreneur and turning your idea into a business! Develop your entrepreneurial mindset by attending this Kansas Ice House Entrepreneurship Program being organized by the Lincoln County Economic Development Foundation. The program will help you develop 1) critical thinking skills to identify and evaluate entrepreneurial opportunities, manage risks, and learn from results, 2) understand processes where entrepreneurs with limited resources can transform simple ideas into sustainable success, and 3) establish personal goals, identify resources, and determine steps to accomplish goals.
The program combines classroom presentations with video interviews and case studies featuring modern day examples of entrepreneurs who have triumphed over adversity by embracing an entrepreneurial mindset.
