The Icebreaker Contest: Ignite Charlotte Style

Posted by on September 7, 2011 in Blog and News | 0 comments

The Icebreaker contest is coming back to Ignite Charlotte, please hold the excitement.

The contest will be completely different than Ignite Charlotte 2’s in three important ways:

The Sponsor: Lightbulb Coworking

The Contest: Though building the Wonders of the World was a treat, we have a whole new problem for the participants.

Part Deux: This won’t be our first ro-dey-o, so we’re going to have more fun putting it on! (not that we didn’t have fun, but simply more fun 🙂 )

What stays the same:

The Purpose

The Icebreaker contest is for people to have a chance to network and play with other participants they might not have otherwise met. The team will be required to work together in order to win the contest. The overall goal is for the participants to have fun, meet new and interesting people, and to leave Ignite Charlotte 3 enlightened, and with a story. Oh yea, one team will have a few months of bragging rights.

The Case

Participants will be placed on a team and they must solve a certain problem. None of the teams will know of the problem until it is revealed by the Icebreaker contest team.

The Timing

The Icebreaker contest will start as close to 6:05pm as possible. Participants and spectators will be highly encouraged to arrive early. Plus, the bar will be open too. Beat the line!

The Fun!

We are super excited for Ignite Charlotte 3’s Icebreaker contest, and you should be too. We’re adding another element to it, which will be revealed on the day of…it won’t be for the weak at heart! (just kidding, the weak at heart are more than welcome).

Those of you who signed up to participate in the Icebreaker contest, we’ll open the doors for you so make sure you arrive early. See you there!
