Ignition is always looking for investors ready to take a calculated risk on promising startups and entrepreneurs. Ignition does not serve as a broker between an individual and an investor. Instead, we maintain a diverse portfolio of startups in a range of different industries. The Ignition Fund is new, and we’re looking to actively grow it.
Are you a successful entrepreneur? Do you have industry or investment experience? Ignition has opportunities for you to help strengthen the entrepreneurship community, with a level of commitment that suits you. We have a mentor network and an advisory board. You do not have to be an investor or be local to be a mentor or advisor.
As a mentor, we will only contact you if someone is working on something related to your industry or experience, unless you indicate you want to be more involved. We’ll ask to pair you with a startup that is looking for mentorship, that we think you may enjoy working with, and which you can add value to. If you agree, we’ll make an introduction.
Advisory board members assist in the governance of Ignition and its fund. We meet once a month to discuss current and future initiatives, the Ignition Fund, and other matters. Transparency and accountability is important to us at Ignition, and we’re always looking for those who can challenge us and improve Ignition and its mission.
Ignition is currently funded by its few founding entrepreneurs. Ignition is a 501(c)3 organization and all contributions are tax deductible charitable contributions. We’re seeking corporate sponsors and additional sources of funding so that we can provide more staff and tools for our startups, and conduct more outreach that inspires others to start new ventures and increases their chances of success.
You may contact us for donations or donate directly through paypal here.
Are you a startup seeking funding? Ignition private equity can help. Our investments are not available to anyone, and each applicant has a process that they must pass in order to receive funding.
There are also third party sources of investment available to you, of which ignition is not involved.
