What’s Ignite

Ignite is all about fast and fun presentations. Selected speakers use 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds, giving them a total talk time of 5-minutes. Those who have the guts to get on-stage talk about something they are personally or professionally passionate about.

Talks like Bird Sex, Nosy Neighbors & Climate Change; Standing In The Center of The Digital Divide; and The Art Of Energy Redirection are thought up and delivered by community members who are instructed to Enlighten us, but make it quick!

The first Ignite took place in Seattle in 2006, and since then the event has become an international phenomenon with over 350 cities staging an Ignite event around the world. You can learn more on the IgniteTalks website.

Ignite Charlotte, a non-profit organization, was founded in 2010 by Bridget B Sullivan, an independent event producer who serves as the executive producer.
