Company Bio

Ignite Accelerator provides accelerator, incubator, and education programs for technology startups.

Ignite is funded primarily through commercial activity, and has also raised investment from Northstar Ventures through the FBNE Accelerator Fund, managed by North East Finance as part of the £125m FBNE program.

Founded in 2011 by Colin Willis, Jon Bradford, and Paul Smith, Ignite was expected to be a one-off, three month program. Instead, Ignite grew into an independent co-working space and venue that span off as Newcastle's tech centre Campus North.

In 2016, Ignite expanded operations to London and Manchester, running accelerator programmes in both cities.
