Featured Client: Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture (CCUA) & Their Build This Town Campaign

CCUA logo
Introducing CCUA and the Campaign

Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture works to enhance our community’s health by connecting people to agriculture and the land through hands-on learning opportunities from seed to plate. Their 1.3-acre Urban Farm grows thousands of pounds of fresh food for local food pantries and educates thousands of children and adults every year. Founded in 2009, CCUA believes cooking and gardening skills have been slowly lost over the last couple of generations, and they want to ensure individuals still have the opportunity to learn them and use it to feed their families.  CCUA helps people grow and cook food at their homes, at local schools, and other community sites.  Billy Polansky serves as Executive Director of CCUA, leading the day-to-day operations.

At Igniting Business, we have had the pleasure to serve CCUA in their IT needs.  According to Billy, “We tried having our own IT staff and it was difficult. It is a completely different skillset and I could not provide those staff with the support they needed to be successful. Outsourcing our IT needs to Igniting Business was a good move for a small organization like ours.”

5 Things We Love About Running Igniting Business in Columbia, MO

Mizzou Jesse Hall and Columns

At Igniting Business, we’re celebrating our 5-year anniversary in 2017! We couldn’t be more thankful for our amazing clients and team. We began our company in Columbia, Missouri. As we reflect over our past five years, we thought it was only fitting to mention the five things we love most about Columbia.

Mizzou Spirit

Both myself and Caitlin are University of Missouri grads (along with several other team members) – so, of course, we might be a bit biased by this one. But it can’t be denied, Mizzou students, faculty, and alums are some of the best in the nation! Mizzou’s spirit cannot be easily squashed. Columbia comes alive every Fall and Spring, and we positively love it!

Igniting Business Turns 5 - Celebrate with Us

Igniting Business 5 Year Timeline

I started Igniting Business in 2012 as a Junior attending Mizzou. I am a web developer and technology fanatic who began creating websites for corporate clients while still in my teenage years. As I developed websites for small businesses, I found that these companies also needed affordable and professional IT and marketing services that they could trust. To meet the growing needs of our clients and by applying both my experience in technology and education in marketing and economics, I envisioned Igniting Business. We started Igniting Business out of my college apartment with a goal to help small businesses succeed.

Today, Igniting Business has the same vision: Helping small businesses succeed. We have grown to serve over 200 small business and non-profit clients spanning from Alaska to Arizona to Missouri to Washington DC! Expanding from my original home office, we now have two offices in Columbia, MO and Lee’s Summit, MO. Our team has also grown throughout the years and now consists of 9 truly excellent team members. Our team offers an impressive almost 50 years of experience in web, tech, and marketing.

Featured Client: ICT Muscle & Joint Clinic

Final Logo
Introducing ICT Muscle & Joint Clinic

With an aspiration to restore hope, function and quality of life, ICT Muscle & Joint Clinic, a Wichita, KS based clinic’s backbone of its care consists of Chiropractic, Soft Tissue Therapy, & Rehabilitation. Using this triage, they provide care for a wide array of sport-related injuries to pediatric & postpartum care, always taking the time to fully assess each patient's movement patterns to identify the source of their symptoms instead of chasing pain. ICT Muscle & Joint Clinic’s goal is to get you moving and feeling better so that you are able to prevent further injury.

Owners Dr. Keith Sparks and Dr. Rachel Girrens were inspired to open ICT Muscle & Joint Clinic to progress the current healthcare model in regard to musculoskeletal pain and treatment. They both wanted to be instrumental in improving the health and quality of care to the greater Wichita, Kansas community by providing an alternate option. Believing patient education is something that is lacking in most healthcare today, Dr. Keith and Dr. Rachel hope to inspire each patient to be involved in bettering their own health!
