A new cohort of The Ignition Option started on April 18. With it brings a new position for a seasoned participant. Many of you know Ryan.
Ryan wants to increase the rigor he applies to his life and is being trained as a “student” facilitator. Taking his listening, organizing, and time management skills to a whole new level. We see this as another level of A Social Ignition’s program success.
A Social Ignition appeared for the first time at PitchFest NW on April 25th. A Social Ignition was honored to be sponsored by Moovel. This provided a demo table for the 2nd day, following Sonja’s pitch to a panel of venture capital judges. Two members of The Long Haul, Alex and Jamal, accompanied Sonja over the 2-day event.
Watch the video and see for yourself. [This is rough footage. We modified the audio and visuals as best we could.]
We also want to thank Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund for granting funds to A Social Ignition! These awarded funds will help A Social Ignition purchase books and teaching materials for The Ignition Option in upcoming cohorts. Sonja will be attending the Award Reception in May.
