What we’re about

“Enlighten us, but make it quick!”

Ignite is a fast-paced, fun, thought-provoking, social, local, informal and global event. It's a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by people who have an idea—and the guts to get onstage and share it with their hometown crowd. Run by local volunteers who are connected through the global Ignite network, Ignite is a force for raising the collective IQ and building connections in each city. There are no pre-selected topics, only one constraint: speakers have 5 minutes, a 20-slide presentation and only 15 seconds for each slide.
