Here are your Ignite Minneapolis 9 speakers, listed in the order in which they will speak.
Ignite Minneapolis brings together local thinkers, writers, designers, coders, makers and entrepreneurs for an evening of rapid-fire talks given by people with a burning passion for their topic. Some talks are serious science, others are pure satire – but each talk must be about a compelling idea or story. Attendees come to learn and to be inspired.
The Ignite format works like this: Each speaker prepares a deck of 20 slides which auto-advance every 15 seconds, giving each speaker 5 minutes to give their talk. The rapid-fire pace of this format often makes for a frenetic delivery, and the variety of topics means the audience is unlikely to ever get bored. The motto of Ignite is, "Enlighten us, but make it quick."
