OUR STORY
OUR STORY

This is the story of how Ignite happened is happening.

CHAPTER I

We started as IGNITE FOUNDERS VENTURES,
an innovation and venture capital firm
single-minded about our vision:
to build and invest in transcendent ventures
by building up and investing in founders.

By transcendent, we meant founders and ventures
driven by a mission bigger than themselves,
who aimed their ambitions squarely at solving
society's most wicked problems.

This, we believed, was the path
to birthing the first Filipino Unicorn,
the first billion-dollar Filipino company
that impacts humanity and matters on a global scale.

To achieve that, we wanted to focus on founders.

CHAPTER II

We soon realized what a mistake that was!
That, to genuinely build up and invest in founders,
we needed to build up and invest in the people
and communities around them - in human beings.

Because, after venture capital, what we needed
to inject again and again into our founders and ventures
was human capital and collaboration capital
- both at such unprecedented scale, speed, and diversity
that we needed to build something all-new.

Thus was born IGNITE GIFTS,
a platform for Innovation and Collaboration
driven by year-round events and media,
and by our expanded mantra:
To help everyone we touched (Igniters)
"do what you were born to do
in the company of others who are doing
what they were born to do"​.

CHAPTER III

Out of all this was born the IGNITE MANIFESTO,
which describes the architecture of our
IGNITE OPERATING SYSTEM (O/S) FOR INNOVATION.

We were now nurturing Igniters by the hundreds,
using data, algorithms, science, art, and design thinking
to drive an integrated series of high-touch experiences,
all with a single throughput and intent:
to drive Igniters through our NECESSARY PROGRESSION,
from individual Genius and Purpose,
to shared Mission and Collaboration,
and ultimately, to Innovation and Impact.

In short: GPMCII.

People fell in love with IGNITE GPMCII
and our mission became shared with many others.
IGNITE FOUNDERS became IGNITE GIFTS
became IGNITE MANILA and now IGNITE DELTA + PARTNERS.

We went from venture capital,
expanded to community platform,
expanded to social movement,
and found a way to involve our country’s biggest corporations.

AND SO WHO ARE WE?

We are CEOs, we are founders, we are investors,
we are in corporate, we are in startups, we are in non-profits,
we might even be in government, we are seasoned professionals,
we are just starting, we are techies, we are scared of tech,
we are born and bred in Manila, we are new to Manila,
we believe in God, we don’t believe in god.

We come from all walks – a diversity rarely seen here,
but what makes us kindred spirits is the flame
that burns within.

WHAT YOU DO AS DELTA PARTNER
WHAT YOU DO AS DELTA PARTNER

First of all, Delta Partnership is for a select few.
The depth and intensity of our innovation commitment
means we can only work with a limited number
of Delta Partners each year.

And we require equal partnership
at the very top of each Delta Partner’s
senior leadership.

Delta Partnership requires replicating
the full Ignite GPMCII Throughput inside your organization
so that you build internal capabilities for Innovation and Collaboration
at the level of individual employees (internal Igniters) and at the institutional level.

This becomes your internal platform
for innovating and collaborating
with our open network of Igniters,
a kindred community that is always growing,
Manila’s most brilliant minds and restless hearts.
