CoMo Events: Ignite Comes to Columbia


This Thursday evening Social Media Club Mid-Missouri is hosting Ignite at Harpo’s. What is Ignite you ask? Ignite is described as “fast-paced, fun, thought-provoking, social, local, global… all of this and more.”  It is an evening of high-energy fun that consists of 5-minute talks by people who have an idea and have the guts to share it. It got its start in Seattle in December of 2006 as a personal project of O’Reilly’s Brady Forrest and Bre Pettis. They wanted an event where people could share their ideas over a few beers. They sent word out to their networks. And Ignite was born.


Fast paced, enlightening, entertaining, this evening is sure to spark a passion in you. Speakers have 5 minutes and 20 slides to tell you what about and idea that “ignites” them and why. Slides change every 15 seconds so speakers must be succinct. There is no boring filler, just great information.


Sponsors for this event include Harpo’s  who are providing appetizers and the The League of Innovators who are sponsoring the first round of drinks. Want to sponsor as well? Email Scott @ PenguinSpark dot com. Your logo will be displayed during the event on 4 TV’s and your business will be promoted by Social Media Club Mid-Missouri.
