McMenamins Mission Theater & Pub

If you had just five minutes to showcase your cutting-edge products, technologies, or methodologies, what would you say? What if you were forced to present those ideas with 20 PowerPoint slides that each rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

The Software Association of Oregon is sponsoring an Ignite event on September 15th. As a speaker, you'll land a platform that challenges not only the way you present your ideas, but grants you access to an audience eager to listen. As an attendee, you'll learn about emerging, innovative, locally-sourced concepts while networking with a diverse and passionate crowd of like-minded, "early-adopters."

What is Ignite? Ignite is a fast-paced geek event where speakers share their personal and professional passions via 20 Powerpoint slides each auto-advancing every 15 seconds, giving each speaker exactly 5 minutes of fame. Quick, fun, thought-provoking, social, local, global - Ignite is all of these and more. It satisfies the ADD in all of us. It's a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by local people who have an idea - and the guts to get onstage and finally give that "elevator speech" we've all been told we need but rarely get to give.

Agenda 5:30pm Doors open, badges, networking, booths, and music 7:00pm Welcome & Ignite talks begin 7:45pm Break 8:00pm Ignite talks resume 8:45pm Ignite talks end, final networking 9:00pm Event ends

[CANCELED] Ignite Bridgetown - part of Portland Startup Week
Empirical Theater at OMSI

Ignite Bridgetown, part of the inaugural Portland Startup Week, will force invite some of Portland’s most interesting people to offer their takes on topics about which they’re passionate --- all in a format that is anything but ordinary.

Welcome to Ignite. Where each speaker gets a chance to present for five minutes. The catch? They only get 20 slides, no more, no less. And the presentation auto-advances every 15 seconds. Whether the speaker is ready or not. Once the presentation begins, it doesn’t stop until the last speaker drops the mic. For the speaker, it’s challenging. For the audience, it’s entertaining. But no matter what happens, it’s an unforgettable experience for everyone in the theater.

Join us as our curated speakers from Portland's thriving startup community share their passion, experience, and personality. Attend Ignite Bridgetown on Thursday, February 5th at The Empirical Theater at OMSI. The program will begin at 7:00pm.

Seating is limited, please RSVP.
