"Since the closure of Loring Air Force Base the region has done a great job to lessen the impact and adapt. Ignite PI brings a new hope and promise for the future. It was refreshing to work behind the scenes with the leadership team of Ignite PI to help build this new nonprofit as their short-term fiscal sponsor. Ignite PI's focused energy to increase collaboration and energize new business models, and new businesses that complement the existing structure is essential for the revitalization of the downtown of the Star City."

Executive Director, Northern Maine Development Corporation

"Ignite PI does not replace the functions of others but is a catalyst to progress and innovation. We've developed an innovative business model where Ignite PI operates a complementary business enterprise that will fuel the local economy in the downtown district while at the same time having a ripple effect on surrounding areas."
