UNITED WE ARE STRONGER.

At Ignite we believe in the power of collaboration. That we will never resolve the root causes of some of the biggest problems affecting mental health if we continue to allow silo’d ineffective approaches to prevail.

That's why we're mobilizing, supporting and uniting game changing mental health entrepreneurs unafraid of transforming traditional approaches to achieve 3 moonshot goals in mental health focused the under 24 demographic.

Together, we’re making the impossible inevitable.


Our mission

To accelerate the solutions needed to provide everybody in the world with the hope, knowledge, access to resources and supportive community needed to avoid, overcome or effectively manage mental health challenges.

IMPACT THROUGH ACTION.

To us, conventional thinking means status-quo results. We don't settle. Instead we ask tough questions focused on root causes, go where the evidence takes us, and bring together world experts, philanthropists and teams to make it happen.

And though the scale of the world's mental health problems is great, our ability to resolve them together, is greater.

“Ignite is a place where people want to solve really big problems”

 

If you are serious about solving some of the biggest problems affecting mental health - and our team will take on nothing less - it requires bringing together some of our best minds and entrepreneurs in an ecosystem where true innovation, unconventional thinking and creativity will thrive. Those elements of culture are very much alive at Ignite.
