BOLDLY, WHERE NONE HAVE GONE BEFORE
We mean literally where none have gone before (scroll if you can’t wait!).
But we mean it figuratively too. Steve Jobs was right: the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. Innovation is never just about the what or the how. It’s about people and purpose: the Who and their Why. And then it’s Who Else – because no one advances humanity alone.
Around here we’re starting to call it
DO WHAT YOU WERE BORN TO DO IN THE COMPANY OF OTHERS WHO ARE DOING WHAT THEY WERE BORN TO DO.
A Movement that started with a handful of crazies jumping off the plane and building the IGNITE parachute on the hurtle down, growing every month to now more than a few hundred of Manila’s restlessly brilliant spirits – each of us pushing these same powerful questions, as we bring more kindreds to each Circle:
Are you a relentless high achiever with a sense that your best is yet to come?
Do you have a passion you could embrace as your life’s work, as if your whole life led to it?
Have you met a pain you are especially gifted (and compelled!) to heal – a problem so pervasive many would be willing to pay for a solution (or pay much for a solution)?
Would you like to embark on the greatest journey of your life, where your greatest joy meets the world’s greatest needs?
As always, our mix of heroes, superpowers and stories, and thus, our serendipities and intersections in each IGNITE Circle stay different and magical every time.
Join us for Ignite Circle V on 07 October 2017.
We’re thrilled to be one of the first events ever in the Ateneo’s iconic new innovation hub, the Arete!

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
