Training sessions at IC² kick off expansion of programs at the San Antonio community college district.
For over two years, the IC² Institute has been working with Alamo Colleges District in San Antonio, the city’s community college district. Alamo Colleges administers education, training and degree programs across five college campuses in San Antonio. Growing in part out of discussions between Greg Pogue of the IC² Institute and Bruce Leslie, then Alamo Colleges Chancellor, the colleges started The Learning Company, a district-wide initiative bringing entrepreneurship skills to students as they bring their startup ideas to market.
On November 16-17, the IC² Institute trained college champions who will drive program expansion at each college location. Presenters in the two-day session included Greg Pogue, Cliff Zintgraff, Art Markman, John Daly, and Marco Bravo of IC², as well as Nina Means from the Austin Community College Fashion Incubator and Austin entrepreneurs from IC²’s FASTForward program.
Incidentally, congratulations to the Alamo Colleges District, the first community college district in the U.S. to receive a prestigious Baldrige Award!
