I can't recommend Stanford Ignite more highly. I entered into the program having already built and exited a tech company and while running a VC-funded startup in London. I left wishing I'd done Stanford Ignite earlier in my career. I'm truly impressed by the quality of the education, the network and the incredible, mission-driven team leading it. Worth every penny and more.

I gained a fantastic network of peers with similar interests along with a 360 degree view of what it means to build a venture from idea generation to execution through to pitching to investors. I cannot think of any other programme which would have provided the blend of academic thinking, practical application and overall high quality learning experience.
