Ignite Ann Arbor 10 – Nov 13 – CALL FOR SPEAKERS


Ignite Ann Arbor 10 will be at 7pm on Friday Nov 13th, 2015 at Robertson (formerly Blau) Auditorium in the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan! Thank you to the Zell Lurie Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies for providing this fantastic venue for Ignite.

Ignite talks are 5 minute talks where the speaker gets 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. We think that breeds creativity, and we like to see talks on a very wide range of topics, as you can see by looking at some of the previous talks in the tabs above.

If you had five minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds? Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to show their answers. We consider geekery to equal passion, so we’re looking for food geeks, tech geeks, business geeks, music geeks, art geeks, history geeks, etc to come and share their stories.

The program is selected from the applicants by the Ignite organizers based on the submitted talk titles and descriptions. We’re looking for people we don’t know, people who don’t look like us, don’t act like us, don’t think like us. We’re looking for you!


Application Deadline is 11:59pm, October 19
Speaker Selection by October 21
Slide submission in 20-page PDF deadline: Nov 4
Runthroughs with Washtenaw Toastmasters: around wkend of Nov 7-8
