Ignite #29 - at THE CHIEF

How often do you get a chance to be a part of something big? I mean really HUGE! To plant a stake in history and say "Ya... I was there when it happened."

Face it, the opportunity doesn't come around often so when it does you have to leap with both feet. And that time is now.

Next Thursday, Ignite Steamboat takes another gigantic step forward with a brand new venue, completely upgraded audio/visual presentation, and several Spark Talk speakers guaranteed to blow your wig off. You can read all the dirty details below but here's the gist:

Where: Chief Theater, Downtown Steamboat. Expect to see our name in lights on the marquis and a line around the block... like the Stones at Altamont, but bigger.

When: Thursday, July 25th ~ 6pm

Cost: Absolutely FREE... but a donation to the Chief is appreciated.

What's New:

  • New venue! ...reception area, catered dining, bar, and cushy theater seating
  • Two mongo on-stage screens and full Dolby surround sound
  • Lighting effects that would make even the Cirque du Soleil jealous
  • Super hi-speed internet for crystal clear Skype interview quality
  • Space for over 100 innovative, forward-thinkers like YOU!

 

So who's on the billboard you ask? Well, since this will be our first showcase at the Chief, we wanted to deliver a lineup like never before. That said, we're bringing in...

James Altucher, serial entrepreneur and author of Choose Yourself. James' message is simple:

"The world is changing. Markets have crashed. Jobs have disappeared. Industries have been disrupted and are being remade before our eyes. Everything we aspired to for “security,” everything we thought was “safe,” no longer is."

If you don't walk away with your mind expanded after this guy speaks then we'll refund your money (ha!). If want to see more from James before the event, check out a recent 15-minute Mastermind Talk.

-------------------

Jerome Breche, CEO of Snap Engage (LIVE!) - Jerome is bringing his tech team of snappy innovators to speak to us in person about their experience launching a Live Chat software product in a competitive arena. Jerome is formerly an architect of distributed systems so he knows a thing or two about working remotely with a distributed team.

And guess what...

These folks all LOVE IGNITE STEAMBOAT SPRINGS!!!

      Tony and I were showing U Grok It at a table in the entrance and had a nice chat with the boys. They are very well spoken and confident. Glad they attended.

    FYI... dinner will be catered by Chef Nicolette of City Cafe. Probably $8-$10 for a healthy portion size. (she never skimps!) ~ Cash bar provided by the staff at the Chief.

    James Altucher is the man! I've heard a bunch of his interviews and actively read his blog. Super pumped for this!

    Can. Not. Wait. This is going to be so awesome. We're all "growed" up moving to the "big boy" venue. Thank you, Smokehouse, for lovingly nurturing us and providing the most awesome space for us to grow and now, as the Jefferson's said, "We're moving on up!"...

    July 19, 2013

    • Jens O.

      Just wanted to echo Lizzie's sentiment: Thank You Fritz! You and the Smokehouse staff have been great to work with for over two years. We will miss working with you.
