Event description


Ignite Young Professionals is a collaborative, energetic group dedicated to personal and professional development for all young adults connected to Portage County. Ignite provides the opportunity to develop leadership skills, connect with other young professionals, and learn about the people and places that make our community a great place to live, work, and play.

Corporate memberships
We recognize the value the relationship between our organization and your company can provide, so we're excited to offer corporate memebrships.

For only $200, you'll receive five Ignite memberships that will provide your employees with the opportunity to visit local businesses and talk with the entrepreneurs who have built them, meet and network with peers and business leaders in the county, and get involved in the community.

Why is it so important for Portage County employers to support Ignite? Here are the top five reasons:

  1. Employee Loyalty: As employees feel more attached to an area through community involvement, they are more likely to stay in the area and with the same employer.
  2. Recruitment: Networking with current members can enrich the recruitment pool with leadership skills and other desirable traits.
  3. Increase Knowledge Base: Access to new ideas and resources can help your business become a stronger company internally and in the eyes of the surrounding area.
  4. Know the Human Resources Available: Companies have the opportunity to meet and network with the next generation of employees and be able to realistically gauge those who will be advancing in their careers.
  5. Peer-to-Peer Marketing: Members discuss where they work and what they do with each other at Ignite events. This is a way for other professionals to learn about your company from current employees.
