SSM Economic Development Corporation (EDC)

Ignite Sault team is proud to announce the SSM EDC as one of our gold sponsors for Ignite Sault 2011.

We asked Terri Chiarello, Business Development Advisor of EDC about their involvement in this year’s event:

1. Why did you sponsor Ignite Sault?

Oftentimes, a little inspiration —  encouragement in the right direction, if you will — is what turns a business idea into an actual business. When we heard about Ignite Sault, our team immediately saw the potential of this event to inspire citizens. The EDC — particularly our Business Sault Ste. Marie division — aims to inspire clients to start a new business or expand their existing business. Simply put, the EDC and Ignite Sault complement each other, which is why we’re pleased to be a part of the event.

2. What are you most looking forward to at Ignite Sault this year?

We’re looking forward to meet with people and listen to their ideas, especially on the entrepreneurship front. Inspiration is a two-way street. We hope to learn from others and also share some of the Sault’s entrepreneurial success stories. When all is said and done, we hope to inspire . . . and get inspired.

3. What speaker/talk are you most interested in hearing?

Given the wide range of speakers, it is difficult to pick one that sounds the most interesting. Suffice to say, we look forward to hearing all of them.
