In prizes awarded

In 2019, Ignite’s Fire Pitch Competition raised in excess of $400,000 in cash and investment prizes as well as countless pilots, and vital connections with customers for participating startups. Startups represented 11 U.S. States, Canada, and Australia.
It was a wonderful experience. I particularly enjoyed meeting all these high-powered & experienced women who were still so accessible.
Ignite is transforming the character of “pitching” from a “dog-eat-dog world where you have to prove yourself to me” into an ecosystem based on creating genuine value, for patients, investors, and the healthcare system overall.
A truly amazing experience. A pitch event like no other. You have a assembled an incredibly supportive network and are using your firepower to accelerate companies beyond a typical accelerator via the customer-partner process and advisory team.
Hands down the best ‘competition’ experience I’ve had.
