Ignite is transforming the character of ‘pitching’ from a “dog-eat-dog world” where you have to prove yourself to me into a ecosystem based on creating genuine value for patients, investors, and the healthcare system overall.

Thank you so much for impacting our entrepreneurial journey with such valuable experiences! We are continuing our collaboration with our health system mentor, they've been amazing!

It was great to work with an investor as my mentor on something and get their candid feedback instead of having to make an ask.

It was a truly incredible experience. Not only did I have the opportunity to speak with key stakeholders in my space, I also had the opportunity to connect with other incredible mentors.

Our investor mentor was AMAZING! We met several times and they provided very valuable information in addition to investing!
