Come One Come All!

On Tuesday, June 12th, IgniteU will be hosting an open house to showcase the new startups we have selected to go through our 9-week accelerator program this summer.  Located at our office on the 3rd floor of 333 Broadway, we encourage everyone to come out and get a sneak peek of the diverse startups we are taking on this summer.  For some of them, it will be the first event they have ever attended as representatives of their startups, so they are looking to receive feedback from the general public and get an idea of what people do and don’t like about their brands.  Worried you won’t be able to tell who is who? Don’t fret, each startup will have a table with flyers and business cards, as well as name tags depicting their position within their company. If having an influence on the local startup scene here in Troy, NY isn’t enough to sell you on coming to this event, maybe free food will.  The open house will be catered by Fitzy’s Fork in the Road, a local mom and pop restaurant with delicious, home cooked food. They will be providing an array of veggie trays, dips, and other appetizers. IgniteU will also be providing a variety of drinks to wash down your snacks including, but not limited to, soft drinks, coffee, beer, and wine.

The event will be starting promptly at 5 pm and will run till about 8 pm. Feel free to swing by at the time that best suits you within those hours.  The event is free to all, however we encourage you to RSVP on our Eventbrite so we can get an idea of how much food to provide. We look forward to seeing you all and getting your feedback on our various startups who are listed below.
