Ignition has by far the best relationships with AWS and Azure.  It means having premium access to AWS/Azure channels, engineering, marketing and sales even though we are still a small startup.

Pankaj Manglik
CEO / Co-Founder, Aviatrix
 

From the first time we met the Ignition team, we appreciated their transparency, candor and depth of industry knowledge. We have come to rely on their network and insight as we build Azuqua. These are people you feel good working with and who are massively committed to your success.

Nikhil Hasija
CEO / Co-Founder, Azuqua
 

The entrepreneur-VC relationship can be, at times, merely transactional. We were looking for a new investor that could bring not just the typical resources, but an alignment of values and a shared joy in the journey. The Ignition team brings that in abundance.

Nymi sits at a complex intersection of multiple markets. Ignition Partners really ‘got it’ and have demonstrated that by acting as a true partner of the company. They’ve helped us build relationships around our ecosystem and proved that there is such a thing as ‘smart money.’

Karl Martin
CEO / Founder, Nymi
 

Ignition was a great help to us as a seed stage investor, opening doors to both customers and partners, and providing feedback and support as our product and strategy evolved from idea to reality.

Girish Pancha
CEO / Co-Founder, StreamSets
 

Choosing Ignition Partners is like dining at Chez Panisse where it’s Alice Waters’ only restaurant and she really cares, and there’s personal attention versus dining at the Cheesecake Factory. They’re both good but good for different things.

Tellwise needed an investment partner that was seasoned and understands the complexities of the enterprise marketplace. As a B2B startup, getting launched with solid advice, connections and capital are all critical. Ignition brought all of those to us in one great partnership.

Conrad Bayer
CEO / Co-Founder, Tellwise
 

Experienced entrepreneurs know If you get the venture right, the capital usually takes care of itself. As experienced operators, the Ignition Partners put as much emphasis on the venture as the capital, and that is what truly differentiates them.

Jeff Hussey
CEO / Co-Founder, Tempered Networks
 

Ignition’s commitment to Trifacta has been nothing short of tremendous. They have supported us in all aspects of our growth. Beyond providing capital, Ignition is instrumental in helping us establish key partnerships, acquire marquee customers, and recruit top-notch talent. They amplify our efforts in all the right ways.

Adam Wilson
CEO, Trifacta
 

Venture firm ‘value-add’ is typically a fallacy. Ignition is exceptional and were contributing meaningful value before the ink was dry on our term sheet.

Don Bulens
CEO, Unidesk Corporation
 

Ignition’s approach to being an investment firm is extremely refreshing.  Instead of feeling like I am a small fish in a big pond, with Ignition I know I am a true priority.  That can be difficult to find in a venture firm.

Laura Mather
CEO/Founder, Unitive
 

The Ignition team is such a powerful extension of our team, from coming up with great ideas to taking active roles in their execution, that we often actually forget they are VCs.

Alex Lebrun
CEO / Co-Founder, wit.ai
 

The Ignition team is an incredibly accomplished group of enterprise IT operators and investors. As an NYC-based SaaS company with a growing list of customers on the West Coast, getting Ignition on the bus was strategic given their strong Seattle and Bay Area presence.
