Conference Ignites a Passion for Business, One Startup at a Time
If you want to go far, you must go with others
The annual Ignite Conference brings together students, CEOs and business leaders—and attendees get to see concepts learned during class in action. Over the course of four days in March, I toured four amazing companies, listened to thought-provoking talks from industry leaders and created connections that will last long past Ignite.
Finding Passion and Community at Entrepreneurship Conference
The Ignite Conference at UC Davis challenges students to ask “Why?”
“The conference gave me an in-depth understanding of the industry…and a determination to call out sexism unapologetically,” writes Christina Souto MBA 20.
Imagine three days in which you meet one amazing entrepreneur after another and leave inspired enough to almost quit b-school to launch your own startup. That’s what I found at Ignite 2014, which had the inspiring tagline, Fueling Tomorrow’s Entrepreneurs. The conference was hosted by UC Davis’ Graduate School of Management and organized in collaboration with Rice University.
