Ignite #27 - Dynamic Lineup of Spark Talks

There's nothing really funny about a stubbed toe.  But yes, I jammed my hallux while doing a Happy Dance about our next Ignite Spark Talk line up.

December 6th will be a monumental evening for Steamboat innovators, featuring 4 dynamic women entrepreneurs, movers, and shakers.  Go ahead a put a big black "X" on the calendar so you don't get double-booked. 

Our December lineup includes...

Jamie Wong, CEO of Vayable.com:  Jamie has diverse experience in product development, storytelling and marketing as a writer, designer and researcher. She has helped bring stories and products to life at The Daily Show, Sundance Channel, ABC News, Michael Moore and Goodby Silverstein & Partners. She has traveled and worked in more than 35 countries and can't wait to someday visit Steamboat.

Amber Rae, CEO of the Bold Academy: The Bold Academy is a life accelerator designed to help you realize your full potential.  Here you'll find your deepest clarity, build confidence, and unlock your ability to lead the life you’ve always wanted to live. Amber also leads The Passion Experiment, where she helps people design the lives they’re meant to lead. As a writer, Amber contributes to Fast Company and writes there twice-per-week.

Ashley Ambirge, Lead Squawker at The Middle Finger Project:  Ash is sassy, whimsy, and a bit of a loose canon in the world of copywriting prowess.  Her blog nurtures an "f-bomb infused" community helping folks lead the life you were meant to live, drink more vodka, get your ass off the warm-up bench, score big clients, and make more money. The slogan for her site is "Because entrepreneurs do it better and vulgar titles are funny." 

Carrie Requist of UGrokIt: Carrie's work spans a range of experience including marketing, business development, evangelism, product management, international product development, consulting and account management including senior staff positions at a range of high tech companies from established firms (Abode, Symantec and Sun Microsystems) to startups (Advent Software and Tungsten Graphics).


So shine up your dancing shoes on join us for other evening of innovation, networking, food, drinks, and a bit a SASS!

    A very inspiring group of women. Nike needs to change their tag line to "Make shit happen". Kudos to booking these speakers. Big shout out to Carrie.

    Great time last night. Thanks for the opportunity to talk to everyone briefly and let you know our good news about U Grok It. I didn't get a chance to say how much Ignite Steamboat has helped us. When people hear that we have an Ignite group of tech enthusiasts in Steamboat, it gives the town and U Grok It credibility. In addition, our lead investor for this round found out about us because of press that we got from being in the LAUNCH conference in March. LAUCH is Jason Calacanis' conference and I first heard about Jason when he gave an Ignite Spark Talk. When we applied for LAUNCH, I made sure to say that we were part of Jason's Ignite Steamboat talk (which he put on his website) and I am sure that made us standout. So, Ignite Steamboat is indirectly responsible for our funding and for that we are eternally grateful.
