Amplify: Sparked by IGNITE Logo

Amplify is an accelerator program presented in partnership with the Centre for Entrepreneurship Education and Development.

This program is a series of 10 virtual workshops with additional in-between sessions for rural start-ups that will take your idea from conception to a business idea that is ready for investors.

We are currently preparing for our Fall Amplify Cohort.

What is Amplify?

Amplify is an exclusive Accelerator Program in partnership with the Centre for Entrepreneurship Education and Development. This program ensures success by utilizing:

  1. A “learn by doing” approach, participants are introduced to concepts and strategies that will move their business idea along a continuum from idea to investment ready.
  2. Accountability and milestones for development that have been incorporated throughout the program to ensure that momentum is measured, and bottlenecks uncovered that can be then addressed through advisory services and/or mentorship.
  3. Best-in-class tools that are employed throughout the program to ensure a consistent experience at both locations of Ignite.

How it Works

Once accepted into the program, the participants will be enrolled as a full-time resident company at IGNITE, full access to our facilities, resources, equipment, network mentorship and programming for 6 months and a cash injection of $5000 in their company to jumpstart their business.

How are Winners Selected?

Once IGNITE has reviewed all the applications and videos received, shortlisted applicants will be invited to pitch live to the judges via zoom. The live pitch event will be a maximum of five minutes with Q&A from the judges. Following the pitch event, IGNITE will reveal the top six winners that will comprise the cohort.
