March – June 2014
Conference: 1-877-409-0442 | Passcode: 2142144
This introductory webinar will provide an overview of HHS Ignite, an internal incubator for new ideas. By exposing teams to a network of innovators and equipping them with the methodologies and tools used by successful startup companies, HHS Ignite provides an environment in which small teams can try something new.
HHS Employees, do you have an idea that you want to get off the ground or a problem that you are trying to solve and want to test a possible solution? HHS Ignite may be the pathway to take you there. HHS Ignite catalyzes early-stage project ideas that can be completed within very compressed time frames. Teams selected into HHS Ignite are guaranteed an appropriate amount of their time to complete the project.
Learn about how you can get your idea selected in the next class of HHS Ignite in a special virtual town hall event on March 12 from 2-3 PM EST on the HHS Yammer network < https://www.yammer.com/hhs.gov/#/threads/inGroup?type=in_group&feedId=1465824 >.
Applications for HHS Ignite close today at 5 PM. More information on HHS Ignite can be found here.
