Who puts this conference on? Is it a national conference?
Ignite is developed, created, produced, led, organized, planned, staffed and completely designed by the Community Development Foundation staff in Tupelo, Mississippi. Why? As the local Chamber of Commerce for Tupelo, Mississippi, and the economic development organization for Lee County, Mississippi, our mission is to create more and better jobs. Ignite helps train and identify leaders that will help our community grow and therefore help bring in new businesses and launch entrepreneurial startups. The Community Development Foundation believes at our community’s core, the ultimate catalyst for growth is the ability to identify, engage and ignite the right people. We felt Ignite would be an ideal way to accomplish this mission. Since 2018, Ignite has been a success!
