Announcing Ignite Portland 12 — November 14, 2013

Do you have a burning idea that you want to share with Portland? Well, we’d like to help you with that!

We’re really excited to announce that you can join us on November 14, 2013, for Ignite Portland 12 held at the Hollywood Theatre, Portland’s Historic Non-Profit Theater.

All of the Ignite Portland speakers and volunteers

Speakers and volunteers at Ignite Portland 11 — you can join them!

Ignite Portland is an exciting, fast-paced, night of presentations where people 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 Ignite Portland talks can be found in our video archive.)

Talk proposals for Ignite Portland 12 are open! We’re looking for speakers and we’d love to hear from you. The submission deadline is 11:59PM on October 10, 2012, so submit your idea today!

Need some inspiration for your talk? Check out the video from Ignite Portland 11 on our YouTube channel. We’re really grateful for brytCAST for supporting Ignite Portland and bringing these videos to you!
