From idea to crowdfunding, better than any Shark Tank.

Ignite is an internal idea crowdfunding platform for teams to collectively pitch and prioritize the right ideas.

90% of our clients have come back to run another Ignite crowdfunding campaign.


Credible and open prioritization

Be smarter about prioritizing which features, ideas, or tasks you focus on first with a process everyone can participate in, not just managers.


Build to last and thrive

Idea drives and inboxes are where enthusiasm and engagement go to die. Instead, create a peer driven process that feels exciting -- and fair.


Promote a culture of experimentation

People internally campaigning for funding for their ideas? Reaching across departments to collaborate? Similarly motivated intrapreneurs combining forces? Yes, please.


Cultivate Labs and two of our clients, AstraZeneca and the Canadian Nuclear Labs, were discussed recently in The Wall Street Journal for their internal crowdfunding efforts using Ignite.
