Ready to join the hottest party of the year?

Wednesday, November 19 at The Zone at Williams Brice

Tickets on sale soon.  

Each year we kickoff one of Columbia's best celebrations of all that makes Columbia, S.C. a vibrant, leading city in the southeast and the U.S. Our evening usually goes a little something like this:

5:15pm: Doors open for networking over some great food and drink.
6:30pm: Program kicks off with a welcome from our Executive Director, presentation of the annual Innovation Award, and 5 high-paced, high-energy 400-second keynote presentations.
7:45pm: We roll on to the final portion of the evening, the Ignite! Ideas Contest. 3 finalists present their ideas for how to start something new, innovative and exciting in our region, you vote for your favorite by text and EngenuitySC and Wells Fargo present a check for $5000 to the winner on-stage that night!
