IGNITE mission is to attract and retain young professionals to the Rockford Region. Great! But how do you actually do that? Well, we’re glad you asked. Our goal is to help YPs (young professionals) feel connected to and engaged with their city. Whether we help you find a great place to get your hair cut, find a local restaurant to bring your family to, a great organization to serve on their board or volunteer with, or new friends and business connections – we’re all about making you feel at home.
