Project Ignite is a campus-wide technology innovation program for students developed by Technology Services Digital Transformation Team in partnership with the Lyles Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The program is designed to promote interdisciplinary student involvement, creativity and exploration of new technologies and business model development skills. Project Ignite hosts an annual Innovation Hackathon for students from various disciplines to collaborate in the creation of viable technological solutions designed to help solve current, real-life problems experienced by our community and/or business partners. Students will have the opportunity to represent Fresno State in a nation-wide competition should they be selected as a finalist in the competition.
Your gift will support the creation, development and implementation of the winning ideas selected from the Project Ignite competition; including workshops, purchase of equipment and people support needed to transform student ideas into reality. Donors have the opportunity to participate in the process as well by submitting their own ideas and challenges to the Project Ignite competition, providing our students with opportunities to develop and build out a viable plan of implementation from start to finish. This is how student ideas can become real life solutions for our community and help interns obtain hands-on experience and opportunities for their future career paths.
