How We Work
The Ignite® model is based on working one on one with passionate individuals to turn their passion into possibility! We match the client with a facilitator who mentors them, working alongside them each step of the way, tailoring the support to the individual. If they need business support with setting up on ABN, or perhaps it is marketing support to set up a social campaign, or getting access to markets or customers, we essentially lift their exposure to customers, lift capability and elevate their support network for ongoing success.
We do all of this working at the pace of the client which might take one month, one year and more – working mindfully with people who have additional barriers and reasons that they may not be able to move quickly through the steps to starting a business.
The backbone of the Ignite® model is our Resource Team also referred to as the business Eco-system of Support, built around each entrepreneur for continued support throughout their business journey even after they exit the program. Our Resource Team consists of business professionals and experts, volunteers, students and low-bono professionals, all assisting with our four pillars around compliance, legal, marketing and finance.
Ignite® entrepreneurs are supported by a resource team, made up of passionate individuals, including business owners, finance and marketing experts, product developers, business advisors, universities and many others. Members of the resource team provide their expertise, business knowledge and skills to our Ignite® entrepreneurs to support product development and broaden their knowledge and understanding of issues including local laws, suppliers and business networks.
Being part of the Ignite Resource Team is a rewarding experience. We are grateful and appreciate the support, however we do have some expectations to ensure best possible support for our entrepreneurs, such as:
- professional and ethical conduct
- confidentiality agreement
- desirable commitment of a minimum of six months due to average business start-up timeframe
