Episode Summary

Video coverage of Knight Foundation's Community Breakfast on June 26, 2013 in Akron, Ohio, featuring: The Ice House Entrepreneurship Program at The Akron Urban League Awarded $60,000 Knight Foundation Grant speakers: • Michael Davis, VP of Business Development and an Ice House Instructor • Gary Schoeniger, co-author of Who Owns The Ice House? The Akron Urban League received a $60,000 award in March 2013 to support the launch of the Ice House program, which will develop entrepreneurial thinking and action in youth. “Uncle Cleve” was an unlikely entrepreneur, a black man in the 1950s segregated South who found success owning the town’s ice house. His nephew, Clifton Taulbert, drew on life lessons learned from “Uncle Cleve” to write Who Owns The Ice House? Eight Life Lessons From an Unlikely Entrepreneur which explores what “mindset” makes for successful entrepreneurs. Now, the Akron Urban League, with a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, is offering would-be business owners a 16-week Ice House Entrepreneurship Program. It’s based on the principles that Clifton Taulbert says empower success. The course, which begins in August, includes classroom presentations, online lessons and video interviews with successful entrepreneurs. The Kauffman Foundation of Missouri, inspired by the book, funded development of the course.moreless
