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

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.

Every event typically features over 10 unique speakers on the one night, with an immensely diverse range of surprising topics. No matter what your interests are, it's guaranteed that our evening of talks will broaden your horizons and delivery new thoughts that you'll be delighted to take home with you.
