iCube was created out of the realization that many students may not have exposure to business and entrepreneurship.
The intent of the club under the Business Alliance program is to provide information and coaching about entrepreneurship and business, such that students understand what it takes to create and grow a business, and what is possible in their lives out of doing so.
Students focus on business and entrepreneurship by getting involved in iCube programs which include: Start-up projects, stock market project, "shark tank" experience, field trips, speaker program, resume/professional skills workshops, summer internships, personal finance seminar, and marketing communication services to Gibbons clubs and groups.
Alumni who participate in iCube create an opportunity for themselves to truly make a difference in the lives of Gibbons students.
Out of sharing their experiences, they inspire students and show them opportunities in a world that goes beyond what they otherwise might have seen as possible for themselves.
In addition, we request participation in an annual meeting of the alumni who participate in the club, which lasts about two hours.
This meeting is an opportunity for the alumni who participate to get together, discuss their experiences with the club, and determine what actions should be taken over the next year to have the club fulfill on its intention as effectively as possible.
Please submit your [disabled link] Alumni Participation form to begin.
