IGNITE Conference

IGNITE @ UC San Diego is an annual, campus-wide conference for innovators and entrepreneurs. The event brings together the campus community, creates conversations, and bridges gaps between disciplines to encourage a cohesive entrepreneurial ecosystem.

The day-long conference reaches students, faculty, alumni, and staff from universities in the greater CaliBaja area; startup teams; partner organizations; and regional entrepreneurs and experts. Dedicated to hands-on learning and engagement, the agenda includes thematic tracks with targeted breakout sessions, multiple pitch competitions, a regional startup and resource fair, mentoring hours, networking, and a downtown startup crawl.

IGNITE is co-hosted by the Office of Innovation and Commercialization and Entrepreneur Challenge, a 10-year-old, student-run, non-profit organization that supports student entrepreneurs. Sponsorship is provided by regional partners and units across campus.
