APPLICATION DEADLINE: ICE HOUSE FACILITATOR TRAINING
NC IDEA is seeking education partners to join in its ambitious goal to educate 100,000 North Carolinians with an entrepreneurial mindset by offering the Ice House Entrepreneurship Program (IHEP).
NC IDEA is hosting a three-day Ice House Facilitator Training for education partners interested in offering the course to their constituents. Since offering the first IHEP training in December 2018, nearly 200 individuals from across the state have become certified facilitators. The Ice House program has since been offered over 35 times to a wide variety of audiences across the state, including middle and high school students, community college and university students, vocational rehabilitation counselors, startup founders and dislocated workers.
Education partners will likely be entrepreneurially-minded organizations drawn from educational institutions (particularly community colleges), entrepreneurial support organizations, economic development organizations, CDFIs or government entities. Organizations with demonstrable intent and capacity to offer the program to individuals broadly, will be given priority consideration.
Because seating is limited, NC IDEA will be admitting facilitators through an application process. NC IDEA will pay the training costs and participants will only have travel-related expenses. The deadline to apply is February 16 at 5 p.m. EST.
