The Ice House Entrepreneurship Program

Have you heard?

The Kauffman Foundation
agrees to match the number of student licenses purchased when you pilot the
Ice House Entrepreneurship Program at your school.

You have an exciting opportunity to have
the Kauffman Foundation assist your college by underwriting entrepreneurship education at your school.

It works this way:

When you agree to pilot the Ice House Entrepreneurship Program at your college and purchase up to 25 student licenses prior to March 30, 2012, (and complete the Ice House Entrepreneurship Facilitator Training,) the Kauffman Foundation will match your investment.

That means you'll be able to enroll
twice the number of participants that you actually purchase in the Ice House Entrepreneurship Program!
