Ignite 5 Program

The preliminary Ignite 5 Program is now available!

Ignite 5 will be held February 9th at 7pm during Global Ignite Week at Blau Auditorium. Register now!

We had 34 great submissions and it was *very* difficult putting the program together. Talks are selected by the Ignite organizers with the goal of creating a diverse, but balanced program of talks of general interest to the community that can complement each other.

Some former Ignite speakers have applied multiple times with multiple ideas before finding the right fit amongst a cohort of serendipitously complementary talks, and we rely on people in the community stepping up to the mic and telling us about their passions. If you’re interested, don’t hesitate to apply for the next Ignite!

Ignite 5 Call for Speakers

What better time is there than a new year for committing to do an awesome 5 minute talk at Ann Arbor’s premier event for 5 minute talks? Ignite 5 will be February 9th at Blau Auditorium, and we are open for talk submissions NOW!

The Ignite format gives you 5 minutes and 20 slides that advance every 15 seconds automatically. It’s a format with constraints, but we believe constraints breed creativity. You have until January 17th to make your submission, but don’t delay; seize the moment!

Ignites are held worldwide and Ignite Ann Arbor 5 will be part of Global Ignite Week, a week of Ignite events held in over 50 cities. This will be the 5th Ignite held in Ann Arbor; 58 speakers have spoken before over 1300 audience members at the previous four events.
