International Ignite

Ignite is a fun, high-energy evening of 5-minute talks and socializing. The Ignite motto, “Enlighten us, but make it quick,” captures the spirit of the event. Speakers have only 20 slides, and 15 seconds per slide, to entertain and inform you!

Ignite was started in Seattle in 2006 by Brady Forrest of O’Reilly Radar and Bre Pettis of Make. Since then hundreds of 5 minute talks have been given across the world. There are thriving Ignite communities in Seattle,PortlandSydneyBoulderBaltimoreNYC and lots more.
