Green Family Donate $7,500 To Ignite Programme

May 5, 2021

The Green family have made a donation of $7,500 to Ignite, a local programme that enables and empowers Bermudian entrepreneurs.

A spokesperson said, “This donation will support Ignite in its mission to support and build a local community of entrepreneurs. As part its mission, the organisation runs a five month educational initiative known as the Accelerator Programme, which includes a two day boot camp, one on one mentorships, workshops and more. As part of the programme, entrepreneurs can also take advantage of a modern office space in the heart of Hamilton at Ignite’s hub, complete with meeting spaces.

“Ignite is powered by Entrepreneurial Spark, a proven approach that combines bespoke start up and growth coaching with a development programme that concentrates taking action as an entrepreneur rather than just learning about it.

“Each year, Ignite takes in around 70 entrepreneurs a year and have managed to maintain this throughout the pandemic, with much of the programme shifting online – although they hope the newest intake will be able to have all the participants on site again. The organisation also plans to support 400 companies over a five year period, helping to encourage a boom in small businesses and entrepreneurship on island.

Andrew Green said: ‘Ignite provides a wonderful foundation for those with incredible ideas, empowering them to succeed and we are pleased to do our bit to support the entrepreneurial spirit and culture in Bermuda.’

Don Mackenzie, Chairman of Ignite, said: ‘Ignite is excited that the Green family is supporting our mission to create jobs in this challenging economy, to diversify the business sectors and to address the issue of opportunity inequality in Bermuda. Their support for Ignite is consistent with Green’s ongoing and significant corporate and philanthropic investment in Bermuda’
