Together, we'll break down barriers, shatter glass ceilings, and redefine what's possible in the world of healthcare leadership and entrepreneurship.

Women are vastly underrepresented in the founder, investment, and healthcare communities. We are on a mission to change that. Formed in 2019, Ignite has become the hub for women leaders of all backgrounds to connect.
