The Cobb Chamber Chairman’s Club got a sneak peek into the new headquarters of IgniteHQ this week. During an official pre-opening reception, IgniteHQ officers showcased the new facility to dozens of business leaders from Cobb County.
“We were pleased to have so many of our community’s leaders see and learn about IgniteHQ,” said IgniteHQ Interim Director Mike Salvador. “IgniteHQ is the first incubator and accelerator of its kind in the region. We expect great things to come from within these walls,” Salvador said.
David Connell, President & CEO of the Cobb Chamber and Kennesaw State University (KSU) President Sam Olens also spoke at the event.
IgniteHQ partners with Kennesaw State University, in collaboration with the Cobb Chamber.
“We are excited about our partnership with IgniteHQ,” said KSU President Sam Olens. “IgniteHQ provides an entrepreneurial path for KSU students and faculty looking to impact the community through invention and fresh business ideas,” Olens said.
IgniteHQ member Paul Ngalle recounted the paramount support and guidance he received from IgniteHQ when growing his startup, textbook streaming platform TreeCabin. TreeCabin recently received over $1 million in investment funding.
Attendees had the opportunity to tour the premises expertly designed by Atlanta firms Veenandaal Cave and furnished by Corporate Environments. Cobb County based security company Loud Security outfitted the new headquarters.
Guests further learned about opportunities to become mentors and sponsors of IgniteHQ once the facility opens at the end of February.
As north Georgia’s premier startup incubator and business accelerator, IgniteHQ is committed to enabling the long-term success and growth of new and early stage companies while enhancing the economic prosperity of the community.
