What Makes Ignition Different

We believe time is the element which matters most in our relationship with you. We make few investments per year and dedicate decidedly more time working with our existing portfolio than on looking at new companies. Time is what allows us to proactively help you in ways you want but did not expect. Time is what creates trust and understanding when your business encounters turbulence. Time is what allows us to apply decades of operational scar tissue tailored to help you resolve your thorniest problems.

Our Locations

There are few venture firms with our executive professional network presence linking Silicon Valley to Seattle’s home of Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. Our business development relationships up the Pacific Northwest down to South of Market San Francisco and to Santa Clara and San Jose enable our startups to get high impact distribution channel partnerships and an elite staffing pipeline that’s available to very few startups.
