Stewardship and giving back are in our DNA at IGNISIS. Blended value simply means we earn profit with the purpose of reinvesting it into the needs of the world around us. We strive to add increasing value to our clients to justify profitability and earn a voice in the markets we serve, and then we strategically engage in philanthropy projects that fit our talent, strengths, gifting and passions to distribute the profits to social and faith based causes that enhance peoples’ lives.
At IGNISIS, we embrace a stewardship philosophy with resources. This model is built on the premise that we are stewards of resources, not owners of them. Therefore, all excess resources in our care are to be put to work for the purpose of helping and enriching the lives of others.
On average, we are involved in five to seven major projects at a time through an ongoing partnership with the Center for Missional Entrepreneurship (CME).
CME engages with people and organizations to supply world-class strategy, introductions, and resources to those who have a track record of making valuable social impact in the world around them.
Our goal is to continue to do what we have been doing for close to a decade now, earning profit to invest in others, and showcasing Beauty, Truth and Goodness to the world around us. We are thrilled to be part of the social and missional entrepreneur movement. We believe that we can make a difference. In fact, we believe that we are here to make a difference. We believe that the greatest impact in recent history will stem out of the revolution of social and missional entrepreneurs who are choosing to embrace the giving back philosophy and tackling the big issues with quantifiable, sustainable results.
Although talking about faith in business is not popular, it is our faith that drives us to serve others. When Jesus was asked what the “main thing” was, I guess he could have said anything, or replied with his typical question or story format, but instead he simply replied; “Love God with all your heart, soul, and mind, and love others.”
We simply try to show love with our actions and our resources. We strive to be rebels to the wrong and a voice for the oppressed. And most importantly, we do so in the name of Christ. In the words of G.K. Chesterton, “Any dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it.”
Find your passion, serve God, serve others, give big, and go against the stream. Viva la revolution!

Scott Hagizadegan, IGNISIS VP, traveled with Retail Orphan Initiative (ROI) to Zambia in the summer of 2013 to build a computer lab for an orphanage.
Here at IGNISIS, our team resembles something like the Navy Seals: extremely efficient, a die for-the-team mindset, problem solving on the fly, and so forth. Translate that to the tech world, and you have an industry-leading team that takes pride in proactive real-time monitoring, knowing each client by name, and making a greater difference in the world by giving time and resources to those in need.
