Here at Ignite Seattle we’ve built a finely tuned machine. Each event delivers on great talks, fascinating stories and a fun and welcoming community atmosphere. But one problem with finely tuned machines is this: they become predictable.
Over the years we’ve had some folks bring us bold ideas that challenge us. They push the limits of the 5 minute format or what can be done with an audience of 800 people. We’re always looking for more talks like this. Do you have something in mind? We want to hear from you. Submissions for the next Ignite are open.
Challenge us with:
- New ways to use the 5 minute / 20 slide format
- Topics or perspectives we’ve never had on stage before
- Interesting ways to use the stage or the audience
- Something we’ve never even considered
To seed your thoughts, here are some challenging examples from Ignite Seattle history:

Getting the crowd to dance on stage: Where the hell is Matt?
