What is Ignite!?

Ignite! is the Bay Area’s largest business expo of its type showcasing new microenterprises started by first-time urban entrepreneurs. The expo also features private and public organizations providing support services for small businesses. The expo will celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit of the Bay Area’s newest business owners and provide greater awareness of the many services available for existing small businesses and those wanting to start a business whether home-based or the next Google.  The event is free to the public.

Who started Ignite!?

Ignite! was started in 2006 by Boku Kodama, while teaching Urban FIRE under a partnership with OACE.  As an entrepreneur for over 25 years with a succession of businesses both for-profit and nonprofit, Kodama faced many of the circumstances that he now teaches. “Without a doubt,” he said, “there are three things that are critical for small business success: 1. selecting a field in which you’re passionate about, 2. writing a business plan that answers the question ‘will people buy what I sell and it be profitable?” and 3. learning the skills of successful entrepreneurs such as the science of success, leadership, marketing, communications and social networking. The problem is that many new business startups believe that money will solve everything. It’s knowledge that’ll make the difference.”

Who funds Ignite!?

Ignite is sponsored through Oakland’s Community Economic and Development Agency (CEDA),  Oakland Adult and Career Education (OACE), Urban FIRE, the hands-on training program using entrepreneurship and new media to facilitate economic and social equality, and your generosity!  Thank you for supporting Ignite! 2010.
