Ignite Labs Events

Ignite Labs will host hackathons at various times throughout the year on different topics that are technology-based.


Ignite Labs will offer tech programs and computer camps for youth in the region.

Ignite Speaker Series

A series of lectures from world-renowned experts will be held throughout the year.

Co-op Program

Ignite Labs is working with the Nova Scotia Community College and Sainte Anne University to establish a Co-op program. The program will initially accommodate six students and grow over time.

Through this program, post-secondary students will get a broad and diverse exposure to various technologies and processes by working with Ignite Labs companies. Ignite Labs companies, in turn, will be able to use the Co-op program as a talent pool. The Co-op program will run year-round.

Lunch and Learn Programs

Ignite Labs will offer lunch and learn programs to teach best practices to Ignite Labs Members and others in the startup community. The programs are free to Ignite Labs Tenants and Ignite Labs Community Members, and cost about $25 for visitors. These lunchtime seminars (which feature free pizza and drinks) deal with fundamental issues of technology and entrepreneurship, such as developing teams, compensating employees, customer discovery and finding the proper metrics for each business.
