Well all good things or mediocre things come to an end. IgniteTech is dead!
RIP IgniteTech: January 2013 – January 2016.
You launched. You tried to help foster a tech startup community. You failed. You died!
Goodbye you miserable jerk, uh, I mean dear brave friend!
Founded as a Meetup Group in the Dayton, OH area in January of 2013, IgniteTech had one primary goal … to help build an energetic tech startup scene that leads to launches of more ideas with high-growth potential. Bring people together through events such as happy hours and pitching and co-working sessions.
It started ok but eventually fizzled. The people it was meant to serve just weren’t ready or maybe haven’t arrived yet. But it was worth a try.
One day soon I’ll write about my failed experiment in attempting to ignite a real tech startup community in a rustbelt town.
