ICE_LogoThe Institute for Cultural Entrepreneurship (ICE) is an immersion program for mid-career museum, preservation, historic site, and other arts and culture professionals designed to introduce business applications and principles of entrepreneurial thinking with the goal of expanding vision and leadership skills.

ICE is a dynamic, four-day experience that immerses participants in the world of nonprofit entrepreneurship training through case studies and skill building exercises that contribute to creative idea generation.  Follow-up webinars keep students connected with mentors and one another to help them become the agents of change that 21st century museums demand.

The training sessions are designed to serve as catalysts that challenge traditional models of museum work in innovative and creative ways.  The Institute at Cooperstown is a collaborative program of the nationally recognized Cooperstown Graduate Program.
