IngenuityLabs Ignite!


  • Ingenuity Cleveland (map)

Ignite! @ IngenuityLabs is an entrepreneurship education series providing business knowledge and down n’ dirty skills in an affordable, social environment.

Programming is targeted to the needs of creative and arts-based entrepreneurs within the Ingenuity and Hamilton Collaborative network, as well as Cleveland’s wider creative landscape. We emphasize peer-to-peer learning and partnerships with established resources in the entrepreneurship ecosystem. Ignite! maximizes the value of social learning and peer mentorship, and provides networking opportunities in an engaged yet informal setting.

Our mission is to empower budding entrepreneurs and hobbyists towards action, accelerate the growth of existing businesses, and drive employment in the creative sector. Won't you come join our revolution!

Drop in for a beer, a chat and learn something new. Suggested $10 donation with nobody turned away.

Ignite sessions include light food and drink. A $10 donation is suggested with nobody turned away.

Join Us!
