In October, employees from across HHS had the opportunity to submit to our HHS Ignite Accelerator their ideas on how to make HHS a more modern and effective organization. In a previous blog post, we mentioned that we received 72 proposals which were reviewed and culled down to 28 finalists.
After an extensive review process, we are now excited to announce that 13 project teams have been selected into the Winter 2015 Class of Ignite!
We announced these project teams via the following blog post:
Congrats to the selected teams!

10/15: Overview Slides and Webinar
On Thursday Oct 9th, we held a webinar providing an overview of Ignite and included information on how to apply to the program.Here are the slides used during the webinar, and as noted, we have also updated our FAQs based upon the questions received.
We were planning on posting the full webinar, but somehow we weren’t able to download the GoToMeeting video recording. Not sure what happened exactly. But as mentioned in that webinar, all the information provided there is also found on this website.
Many thanks to all that joined and that asked questions. We look forward to reading your proposal!
