18 Countries + 141 Students + Creativity = ICSB 2016 Academy Launched at Stevens Institute of Technology.


When we designed the ICSB Academy Program, our objective was to further enforce ICSB’s mission to facilitate learning related to entrepreneurship. We also wanted to inject enthusiasm, energy, and creativity in our conference by designing a program that was targeting younger participants — both as aspiring entrepreneurs and/or running diverse ventures. This is one of the fundamental pillars of ICSB.

With that in mind, we sought out a global faculty of experts in all domains with a passion to teach. We also needed a host university and some great partners to help with all the logistics. We are proud to say that the ICSB Academy vision and efforts are coming together with an electrifying opening kicked-off by our incoming ICSB President, Dr. Luca Iandoli.

Some quick facts to showcase ICSB 2017 Academy:

  • 18 countries represented!

  • 141 Students 🙂

  • Average Age of 2017 cohort is 26 years old. 

We want to Thank Stevens Institute of Technology for opening their classrooms, campus, and dorms for our ICSB Academy Students. We also want to thank New Jersey Institute of Technology for supporting our Academy activities and hosting a lunch! Please see the full ICSB Academy Program at www.ICSBAcademy.org

National Small Business Week — May 1-6, 2016

The ICSB is a supporting co-sponsor of the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) signature event, the National Small Business Week, which will take place between May 1-6, 2016.

Every year, since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.

As part of National Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories. Every day, they’re working to grow small businesses, create 21st century jobs, drive innovation, and increase America’s global competitiveness.

During this week, the SBA will highlight the successes of small business owners and provide educational workshops for entrepreneurs thinking about start or growing a business. This year’s theme will be “Dream Big, Start Small.”

The SBA will be organizing events in 5 different cities between these dates. #DreamSmallBiz.
