“Enlighten us, but make it quick!” is the only theme of the topics of Ignite Zürich.

Come and join us for a diverse and very long list of speakers that we have prepared for you. Our speakers are brimming with a wide range of fascinating ideas to tell you about including:

Whatever happened to the 40 hour work week? What's going to happen when we succeed in building artificial intelligence? Enjoying bicycle travel, scientific visualizations, turning your man into being king, growing up in Silicon Valley, an intro into visual communication and virtual reality, how volunteerism can save you, leading with cultural intelligence, information poverty/magnetism/trajectories, and (my favourite that I can't wait to hear about) robots on LSD... what?!?

There's going to be even more than these, so nobody is going to be leaving without a head full of new and unexpected knowledge!

Our speakers for the evening are:

- Thomas Hayk

- Arzu Çöltekin

- Kaspar Etter

- Martin Naumann

- Leni Zupan

- Armin Rott

- Ralph Straumann

- Christine Dürschner

- Keith Gunura

- Christina Kwok

- Karl Brodowsky

- Indranil Bhattacharya

- Lukas Schleuniger

- Jane Piper

What is Ignite?

Fast-paced, fun, thought provoking, social, local, global… Ignite is all of these and more. It's a high energy evening of 5-min talks by people who have an idea.

There are no pre-selected topics, only one constraint: At the events, Ignite presenters share their personal and professional passions, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds for a total of just five minute.

Food at Ignite Zürich is kindly sponsored by Hitchensen AG:

Our host location for this Ignite Zürich event is Citizen Space Zurich.
