Ingenuity Cleveland Brings in Local Entrepreneurs to Inspire Others

Ingenuity Cleveland has announced their spring lineup of local entrepreneurs for the second season of Ignite! @ IngenuityLabs.

Ignite! is an entrepreneurship education series providing business knowledge and “down n’ dirty” skills in an affordable, social environment.
