Ignite Bermuda is inviting “all aspiring, emerging, and established local entrepreneurs and community leaders” to an Open House on Wednesday, December 20th.

A spokesperson said, “Ignite Bermuda, the island’s award-winning accelerator programme, is thrilled to extend an invitation to all aspiring, emerging, and established local entrepreneurs and community leaders. Join us for an engaging Open House on the evening of Wednesday, December 20, at 5:30 pm.

“This is your chance to dive into interactive info sessions, engage in dynamic break-out groups, and gain insights about the Ignite Accelerator programme and the upcoming recruitment process for our 8th Cohort. Plus, you’ll get to meet our dedicated team and connect with a number of our alumni.”

Kisha Tyrrell, Cohort 7 participant and founder of Enzuri Beauty said, “Ignite has positioned me for success in ways I hadn’t thought of. The resources that they have provided, while there are some that I’m not ready for at the moment, just the fact that I have access to them and can get in contact with somebody when I’m ready, has been phenomenal.

“You have to take the leap; what else do you have to lose? …Sitting on that fence is not going to get you there.”

    I applaud what Ignite Bermuda, but it should not be necessary.

    Just last Friday Minister Jason Hayward said the implementation of government initiatives “has contributed to greater levels of economic activity and the expansion of Bermuda’s economy” and promising “a clear path to growth, employment and more significant economic development”.

    Of course, that was just before a local company laid off 19 staff citing “the prolonged stagnation of Bermuda’s economy”.
