Ignite Portland 10 coming in February! Submit your talks now!

It’s been a while since we had an Ignite Portland, and we know you’ve all been waiting for details about the next event. We’re really excited to announce that you can join us on February 9, 2012, for Ignite Portland 10 held at the McMenamins Bagdad Theatre and Pub!

Ignite Portland is an exciting, fast-paced, night of presentations where people can share their passions and burning ideas. The rules are fairly simple: 20 sides x 15 seconds per slide (auto-advancing) = 5 minutes of awesome. Presentations can be on nearly any topic, so long as they can teach, enlighten, or inspire us. (Some examples from past Ignites Portland can be found in our video archive.)

Talk proposals for Ignite Portland 10 are now open! We’re looking for speakers and we’d love to hear from you. The submission deadline is 11:59PM on December 30, 2011 (we didn’t want you stressing about your proposal on New Year’s Eve), so submit your burning idea today!

As always, Ignite wouldn’t be the great event it has come to be without a lot of help from all of you. Maybe you’ve got a great idea and want your 5 minutes on the stage, maybe you’d like to help out and make sure things run smoothly, or maybe you just want to kick back with your tots and beer — no problem, Ignite Portland 10 is the place for you!

To recap, we’re looking for:

  • Talks (submit your proposal right over here)
  • Volunteers (both for planning and the night of the event, join our planning list)
  • Sponsors (we rely on generous Sponsor Love to keep this event free)
  • A wonderful audience (save the date to attend Ignite Portland 10 on February 9th!)

Ignite Portland is another awesome Stumptown Syndicate project!
