Ignite in the North East
This is week 5 of the current Ignite Pre-Accelerator Programme and we have been blown away by the amazing founders and startup ideas the North East has to offer.
It’s really been a pleasure to go back to our roots and support the ecosystem that helped so many founders in the Ignite family to build and grow their businesses.
We’ll also be introducing you to our Pre-Accelerator teams soon!
Last, but not least, Ignite has also grown as a team! Say “Hi” to Alexis, our new Associate, and read about his experiencehere.
