Ignite: Lean Startup II

- Ignite Talks will start promptly at 7:45 PM



View on Youtube / Meetup



Ignite is a fast-paced presentation style that gives you the opportunity to share lessons learned with a room full of drunk entrepreneurs. But there's a catch: your presentation is limited to exactly five minutes and twenty slides - and those slides advance automatically every 15 seconds. Like running a startup, giving an Ignite presentation is a harrowing experience that feels great to have done and garners you lots of admirers.

Ignite: Lean Startup is sponsored by the NYC Lean Startup Meetup and is generously hosted by Pivotal Labs. 


Featuring: Top-Shelf Open Bar, Sandwiches, DJ and more. Professional bartenders Tom Richter and Brandon Bramhall will be on hand to serve up some incredible cocktails.

    Loved it overall, I see the benefits of the quick paced presentation style but don't like how it eliminates the spontaneity from presentations. Minor issue, great event. Learned a ton and met many amazing entrepreneurs.

    Great conversations, awesome bar. Couple of talks were excellent, others too much inspiration not enough information.

    Generally good presentations, though some of the presenters were a bit "green" to be talking to a room full of deeply experienced people.

    First time, but definitely worth applauding for an encore! My acts: focus more on case-examples presentations that Lean-methodology. Cu next time!

    Awesome presentations. Especially the one with the chemist dog.

    Better than spending a night in reading The Lean Startup... don't do that. Well, maybe if this isn't going on.
