LIVE – Ignition Lab Guests: Blake Eskin & Allison Vicenzi

RECORDED Saturday, February 24, 2018

The Ignition Lab is a team-based 7-month intensive learning program that will expose participants to the practices of creating a startup. Each session begins with presentations by leaders in the start-up and entrepreneurship world. These presentations are streamed live online so those who are not participants in the Ignition Lab can participate in the discussion.

Blake Eskin is an assistant professor of Journalism + Design at The New School and the executive producer of two Design Observer podcasts, The Design of Business | The Business of Design and The Observatory. He has worked at early- and late-stage startups and was the first web editor of The New Yorker.

Allison Vicenzi is the founder and owner of VICENZI, an American made womenswear label founded on the simple premise that women should feel good in, and feel good about, the clothes we choose to wear. Her Blazer Nº1 is now available in select markets.

She is on a mission to create more and consume less, and to help anyone interested in doing the same. She recently started her own line of women’s blazers and has participated in the #NoNewStuff challenge for nearly 2 years and help organize the Sustainable Fashion Meetup of NYC. Previously, Allison worked in 3D printing, edtech, and concierge services.
