Ignite Boise 02: July 16th, 2009.
For those who may have missed the inaugural event, Ignite Boise 01 was a fantastic success. And, if you’re not familiar with Ignite Boise, here’s a little more about the event:
WHAT IT IS:
Ignite Boise is a 3 hour-ish idea feeding frenzy that brings together artists, geeks, entrepreneurs, academics, government officials, and others to share their ideas in fast-paced, bite-sized presentations. It’s a great opportunity to meet smart, interesting people (if we do say so ourselves) and maybe even learn something.
Bringing together embers of big ideas to spark a blaze of creativity in Boise’s business and creative community –leaving attendees more educated and just as importantly, more inspired.
HOW IT WORKS:
Presenters each get five minutes and 20 slides (automatically rotating every 15 seconds) to talk on a topic of their choice. Everyone is invited to participate, though due to the limitations of space and time, only a handful will be selected to present at each event.
Zero. Zip. Nada. Ignite Boise is brought to you by a group of volunteers and sponsors.
If you’re interested in speaking at Ignite Boise 02, proposal submissions are now being accepted. Submissions are due by June 5th at 5:00pm.
