Participants from the 2021 pilot programme expressed that the programme was “engaging while enabling them to gain a deeper understanding of entrepreneurship, and ultimately solidifying their desire to pursue their passions.”

When asked about their internship experience, an intern stated, “We could always bounce ideas off each other, collaborate, work through problems, meet with other entrepreneurs in the Ignite network.”

Another intern added that their host mentor “always asked me what I wanted to learn and was open to all of my entrepreneurial questions. She really showed me the behind the scenes of running a business.”
