The Ignite Awards serve two purposes. They honor local women-owned businesses that are enjoying notable success. The awards ceremony hosted by the Women's Business Center also works to bring together female entrepreneurs with the services and connections needed to move their firms forward. During her monthly appearance on WBFO's Press Pass, Jessica Marinelli of Buffalo Rising profiled the award winners and discussed the promising trends for women in the business world.
