Red Wing Ignite (RWI) provides infrastructure that enables entrepreneurship and innovation for the Red Wing community. Moreover, RWI provides collaborative space for meetings, co-working space, and private offices; events to learn and connect; resources for all stages of businesses; regional and national networks; and gigabit internet access. RWI was founded by the Red Wing community with the support of local foundations and the City of Red Wing.
The mission of Red Wing Ignite is to bring like-minded entrepreneurs, advisors, and investors together in order to “create a unique ecosystem for the Red Wing community to share ideas, resources, and expertise.” In turn, this ecosystem “promotes local and regional economic development through new company creation and expansion.”
RWI is a partner of US Ignite, which fosters the development of next-generation applications. They help communities, developers, and individuals bring gigabit applications to life. Even though Red Wing is one of the smallest cities in the partnership, their vision and efforts are big. “US Ignite was founded by the National Science Foundation and the White House to keep the United States globally competitive.” They “‘ignite’ the development and deployment of new apps with profound impact on how Americans work, live, learn, and play.”
