Ignite BGI joins Washington Entrepreneurship Celebration

September 4th, 2012

Ignite BGI just got a whole lot more spark. Governor Christine Gregoire will champion the event as part of a statewide celebration of entrepreneurship and innovation in Washington during Global Entrepreneurship Week this November. Sponsored and coordinated by the Washington State Department of Commerce, the schedule includes a range of activities, events and competitions, including our Ignite on November 14th from 6-9pm.

Ignite BGI features social entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs focused on creating social and business solutions integrating the triple-bottom-line in this innovative IGNITE. Inspiring, connecting, and engaging nearly a dozen sustainable MBA students and faculty will unleash ideas in the rapid fire presentation style of “Ignite: Enlighten us, but make it quick!” IGNITE BGI is slated for the evening of November 14, 2012 in the newly opened Center for Impact and Innovation, a unique partnership with Social Venture Partners, BGI, and HUB Seattle located in historic Pioneer Square. Ignite is a forum designed for individuals to share interesting knowledge quickly and immediately to a live audience as well as re-broadcast to the world at large online. Ignite presenters share their personal and professional passions, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds for a total of just five minutes. An Ignite evening includes networking breaks to further discuss and explore interesting ideas.
