Resources

The backbone of the Ignite® model is our Resource Team also referred to as the business Eco-system of Support, built around each entrepreneur for continued support throughout their business journey even after they exit the program. Our Resource Team consists of business professionals and experts, volunteers and students.

About Ignite:

The Ignite® Small Business Start-ups Program is an SSI initiative established in 2013 to facilitate small business creation for people from a refugee and migrant background who want to start their own business or expand an existing one.

IgniteAbility®, Ignite’s sister program, facilitates business creation for people living with disability.

Ignite Head Office is based in Marrickville, however SSI has offices across Greater Sydney which are used by the Ignite and IgniteAbility team. We also have regional offices with Facilitators based in Armidale and Coffs Harbour.

Follow this link  https://www.tfaforms.com/4678390 to submit an online referral and a member of the Ignite team will contact you within 7-10 business days, sooner where possible, to organise first steps.

We suggest that you refer yourself https://www.tfaforms.com/4678390 and attend out Ignite Educate information session which will give you just enough insight into what it takes to run a successful business and what Ignite can do to support you to turn your passion into possibility.

Short answer is NO. Long answer is, we believe that providing capital funding to an entrepreneur at the outset is detrimental to their business development without assessing their product, marketing and financial wellbeing. Look at it this way; if you built a house on a weak foundation, eventually it would crack and collapse. Building a strong business foundation at the start is important to long term business success.

We have previously supported entrepreneurs in both Queensland and Victoria. Email us at ignite@ssi.org.au with your enquiry and we’ll contact you to discuss.
