Ignite reinforced my commitment to becoming an entrepreneur. IGNITE truly cultivates a supportive, team environment, that is centered around the aspiring business owner/entrepreneur. The staff, facility, resources and environment are a blessing to our community. Participating in I2E gave me access to experts in the field, a broader understanding of business operations, and a community of creative minds that helped me define what Better Performance Physical Therapy will be.

Everyone was extremely supportive, offered great advice and feedback, and I feel we all greatly benefitted by bouncing ideas off of each other. Ignite was an amazing resource and really helped us to think critically in regard to our business plans.

My experience with Ignite culminated into a hands-on, owned and operated small business in the Dog Care arena. Ignite provided boundless opportunities for interactions with other Washington County up-and-coming entrepreneurs with which the exchange of experiences, personalities, knowledge and challenges never would have been possible.
