Ignite Portland 10 Wrap-Up

Ignite Portland returned to the Bagdad after a long hiatus for an evening filled with cat pictures, Venn diagrams, laughs, strange facts, minor technical difficulties, piles of tots, many pitchers of beer, and even a little singing. We’ll be sharing the videos soon, but we just wanted to wrap up a great event with some thanks.

We couldn’t have made it without a lot of help, so we want to thank you all.

  • Thank you to the great speakers who dared to share their passions for 5 minutes on stage; you’re the reason we put on and attend these events.
  • Ignite Portland wouldn’t happen without amazing volunteers and we cannot thank them enough. They take care of everything from the securing sponsorship to making sure the beer line moves along in an orderly fashion.
  • Speaking of Sponsors, with them this event wouldn’t be possible. Our sponsors let us keep this event free and provide the live streaming for folks who aren’t at the Bagdad.
  • Our attendees – thanks for showing up, having a great time, and especially thank you for bringing enough food to fill nearly 3 barrels up with donations for the Oregon Food Bank.

The barrels for the Oregon Food Bank will be at the Bagdad through the weekend. If you’re in the neighborhood think about dropping off a donation to help fight hunger.

Want to help the Oregon Food Bank even more? Sign up for the Ignite Portland volunteer day on February 18th from 1-3pm. We’ll be filling boxes and kids over 6 are welcome to join with their parent or guardian.

Were you inspired by the talks and have a burning passion you want to share with Portland in the fall? You can submit your proposal now for Ignite Portland 11 here.
