The Ignite Program is now over.

We want to thank everyone who participated in our many group workshops, intensive Hackathon, and came along to hear from insightful, successful local business owners at our Breakfast with an Entrepreneur series.

Each event helped attendees minimise obstacles and build the confidence to move forward with their startup venture.

The Ignite program was made possible thanks to LaunchVic funding, led by the City of Whittlesea and delivered by the Melbourne Innovation Centre.
