Ignite is full of super-smart, energetic local folk with great ideas... from sandwiches to robots to Bollywood. And sure, most of us enjoy the free beer too. But with so much awesomeness in one space, in one night, we thought it prudent to figure out how we, as a community, can give something back. How's that saying go? "With great power comes great responsibility." (It was either Voltaire or Spideman... I'm an expert on neither Marvel comics or French philosophers.)
Anyway, we're excited to have formalized the charity portion of Ignite Minneapolis in time for the fourth event on May 24. And we're taking submissions for beneficiaries... starting... now. The chosen charity will receive a $150 cash donation, in-venue donation collection and marketing opportunities, two tickets to the event, and the generally sweet benefit of being included in Ignite promotional vehicles.
The nomination form is now closed. We'll announce the chosen nonprofit next week.
