Ignite

Get a Department of Taking My Business to the Next Level 

You are good, but you want to be better. Ignite guides you through a deep exploration of your business operations and growth initiatives to deliver a researched, tested, and validated growth strategy in less than 90 days. 

Ignite is designed for businesses who want to grow but aren’t quite sure of the next steps. It is designed for business leaders who want to scale up their existing operations or kick start a new revenue stream. Participating companies work with an experienced facilitator to learn a set of tools and strategies to test and validate new ideas and develop a business model focused on growth for their business. Ignite can be a simple, low-cost way to de-risk a new venture and prove (or disprove) its viability. 

Ignite is a proven process that will help you grow faster.

Program Details

The Registration fee for Ignite is $5000 per company, which includes:

  • 18 hours of direct workshop facilitation
  • Up to 4 team members to each session (that’s over 70 hours of professional development training for your team!)
  • Everything you need to take your company to the next level.

Ignite consists of 6 3-hour workshop sessions spread over 8 weeks, typically one session every 1-2 weeks. There will also be homework to complete between the sessions. 

There are five Cohorts planned for 2019.

Cohorts will take place: 

  • February/March
  • March/April
  • May/June
  • September/October
  • November/December

Each cohort consists of between 3-6 participating companies. Each company is able to bring up to 4 team members to each session. Cohorts are kept small enough to ensure there is significant individualized support yet large enough to provide context, peer learning, and perspective sharing. 

 

In this program, you will learn a repeatable methodology of business modeling tools and lean start-up techniques to reduce the uncertainty and risk of launching and scaling new ideas.

Ignite is a growth development program uniquely tailored to support mature businesses to scope out new business initiatives and ideas. Here’s what past participants are saying:

“Ignite showed us how to test our assumptions before investing time and money in a new business idea. The overwhelming support and heart felt care that the group has for you and for your successes as a business is amazing.”

Heather Manna – Managing Partner, MMG Mortgages

“It was an intense program that showed us, while we are great at creative thinking we are not so great at focused business thinking. The program solidified our team thinking, preparing us to tackle problems and prepare for growth.”

Leslie Brooks – President, Hippo Hug

“The Ignite program was great to keep us on track for timing purposes and also for the connections to product managers and investors. The process was excellent. I would recommend it to any business with need of a format to grow into new areas of business.”

Don O’Dwyer – CEO, Raven Bay
