What if you were only given 5 minutes and 20 slides to make a point? Ignite Colorado Springs is a night of high-energy presentations with a twist. Speakers are community members who will teach, enlighten and inspire – and they have exactly 5 minutes to do so. The goal is for speakers to “ignite” ideas through energizing talks and generate a “spark” of movement within the community.
Ignite is a high-energy evening giving voice to the ideas and insights of Colorado’s brightest, most creative and most influential people. By bringing together such a diverse group of people we hope to create new connections and inspire action for our community. This action will take many forms, and each will help move Colorado toward a brighter future. Ignite is a night of presentations with a twist. Each presenter has only 5 minutes and 20 slides advancing automatically to make their point. Speakers must get to the point quickly and succinctly, providing the audience with a hint of the scope of their projects, initiatives, and visions.
Who Should Attend? This event is about community – bringing people together to spark ideas. This means you! We welcome community members, business leaders, organizations, students – and everyone in between. The event is free and open to the public, but is limited to the first 300 registrants.
