Enlighten us.

(But make it quick.)


Where TED talks meet Saturday Night Live skits meet that really cool block party you went to that one night.

Presented by Launch DFW, Ignite DFW is a community speaker series where individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds speak on diverse subject matters. (Yes, there is a Wikipedia page.) It started in Seattle and has spread to 350+ organizing teams. Dallas/Fort Worth is proud to produce IgniteDFW.

Each speaker is granted 5 minutes of stage time. (Heckling encouraged.) But, here’s the kicker: 20 slide maximum. On auto-advance. 15 seconds per slide. (Now you understand the heckling.)

Speakers are encouraged to speak from the heart. Each speaker applies and is selected to speak on a subject matter on which they are passionate. To note: This is not a pitch event. Speakers are not allowed to pitch their business or themselves.
