Ignite Northwest's inaugural Demo Day is Tuesday.

Ignite Northwest's upcoming inaugural Demo Day is being held this coming Tuesday, November 17. The location is Washington State University Spokane Campus - Phase 1 Classroom Building Room #122, 668 North Riverpoint Boulevard. They will be featuring their Fall 2015 class of promising, emerging companies who have completed their 12 weeks of intensive training in what one member described as being comparable to a 'highly compressed Executive MBA program'.

Each of these companies will be presenting themselves from 2 to 4pm, followed by an hour of networking and opportunities to speak to each of them individually. At 5pm, Ignite Northwest will be awarding each of these companies their completion certificates and will include keynote addresses from Mayor David Condon and Dr. Lisa Brown, Chancellor of Washington State University - Health Sciences campus located in Spokane. Following the ceremony, there will be a hosted reception for further opportunities to network and mingle.

This should be an interesting and fun event. This is a great opportunity to learn more about this Spokane ecosystem and our tools to enhance local economic growth. Contact Jayson Cannon at 509-358-2062 for more information and to RSVP your intent to attend.
