WE KNOW THESE 5 TO BE TRUE

First, that I am gifted with my own Genius
– unique, unrepeated and unrepeatable
for all time.

Second, that my singular Genius bears
the thumbprint of Who I Am and Why I
am Here
. Genius points to Purpose,
Purpose to Genius.

Third, that I can only give out of what I
have been given. And what I have been
given, I must give and live for others.
Genius finds its fullness
in a Purpose bigger than self.

Fourth, that if I am honest and brave, my
Genius and Purpose will find their
manifest call in a shared Mission –
with others, for others. A Mission rooted
in finding that particular slice of humanity
whose particular pains I am particularly
gifted (and compelled!) to heal.

Fifth, that this shared Mission leads
naturally to Collaboration, and ultimately,
to Innovation. Shared Mission demands
Shared Genius: mine, yours, ours.
If we are a collection of our own Genius –
each unique, unrepeated, unrepeatable –
where can we go, but to Innovation.

We Ignite, therefore, not just for self, but
for each other. Because what we are
born to do, we are born to do with
others. We need each other’s Genius.

And far beyond Genius, we need each
other to be on this journey, to fulfill this
necessary progression: from Genius, to
Purpose and Mission, to Collaboration,
and ultimately, to Innovation and Impact.

This is the path of transcendence. This is
how we lift each other to heights we
never in our wildest dreams, or loftiest
ambitions, dared.

WHO SHOULD IGNITE

What we can do for you
we did for us first.

Founders who are doing what they
were born to do find co-founders,
investors, mentors, experts in tech,
design, sales & biz dev, marketing,
operations, customer service, finance

and legal who are doing
what they were born to do.

Investors who are doing what they were
born to do find founders and teams,
the fundamental drivers of value,
who are doing
what they were born to do.

Big Company CEOs who are doing
what they were born to do find
key partners and key hires who are
doing what they were born to do;
as do Corporate Recruiters and
Executive Search Firms.

Students and Professionals who are
doing what they were born to do
find career opporuntities,
from full-time roles to internships,
projects, collaborations and other gigs
that fit beautifully
what they were born to do.

Organizations big and small nurture
cultures where people are empowered
to fulfill their greatest potential: to do
what they were born to do.

Brands connect with people, not as
consumers or customers, but as
human beings whose deepest desire
is to do and be what they were
born to do and be.

 

OUTCOMES + IMPACT

What happens by the 30th day,
or the 3rd month, or after a year
when every week, week after week:

 

We get to know ourselves with more
clarity, depth, and authenticity?

 

We keep meeting the
right people at the right time?

 

We keep meeting the
right opportunities at the right time?

 

What mighty things we can dare,
What wicked problems we can solve,
What greatness we can unleash,

 

When people do
what they were born to do
in the ever increasing company of
others who are doing
what they were born to do.

WELCOME TO IGNITE

This is your space for the
most important conversations of life.

Who am I? Why am I here? What was I born
to do? And many things between.

These are lifelong conversations;
never done, never off the to-do list
Conversations at times comforting,
at others, confronting and uneasy;
always meaningful, revealing, filling.

Here, as in all good conversation, you
speak and you listen. With your mind,
surely. But if you are true, then these
conversations are always – and perhaps
only – with your heart and soul.

This is not religion. IGNITE is
nobody else’s sacred space but yours
We hope you visit often, weekly at least.
That’s what we built this for,
that’s how to IGNITE: with frequency
and the proven force of habit,
helped along by technology.

Just log in and you’ll see a new, deeper
layer every time – all of it increasingly
more and more personalized –
for you, with you, by you.
As in all good conversation, we are
merely surfacing your deep truths.

Want more? Join us in person for monthly
Ignite Circles and Retreats quarterly
Ignite Weekends, where we take on the collective
challenge of birthing mission-
driven ventures over 72 intense hours. For
those solving the world’s wicked
problems who need venture capital and
partnerships, we offer Founders Lab (Seed
Capital), Founders Leap (Growth Capital)
and Ignite xChange (Corporate and
Venture Innovation Labs).

In short, we do all we can
to spur life’s most important
conversations into
action, collaboration, impact.

Whether online or in person, to IGNITE is
to embrace Greatness – by embracing with
greater clarity, depth, and authenticity
what we are born to do.

We IGNITE, therefore, not just for self,
but for each other: because what we are
born to do, we are born to do with others;
likely many others. We need each other’s
Greatness.

To IGNITE, we use a personalized mix of
questions we each discern for ourselves.
Our inputs – which are always kept in
utmost privacy – are then run through
algorithms, and later AI, in order to
hasten serendipities: meeting the right
people at the right time with far more
frequency, far more precision, far more
depth, far less small talk and small-
mindedness. We have smart phones,
smart TVs, smart cars – surely we can
get smart where it matters most.

IGNITE, then, is not to be mistaken for
networking, or LinkedIn, or getting social.
We’re here to connect, not on job titles,
industries or hashtags, but on the shared
desire for meaning and purpose,
A Life Fulfilled.

To do what we were born to do
in the ever-increasing company of others
who are doing what they were born to do.

Out of all this, Greatness happens.
And Transcendence. You will do things
you never in your wildest dreams
imagined, or in your loftiest ambitions
dared. And you will do it with kindred
spirits who will call you, and you them:
friends and partners.

This is the promise of IGNITE GIFTS.
