Ignite San Francisco is the Bay Area’s volunteer-run chapter of Ignite Talks--a global event series of speedy presentations. We bring the community together three times a year for a night of entertainment on a diverse variety of topics. Presenting on the subjects of their choice, speakers have precisely 5 minutes to amuse, educate, enlighten, or inspire the audience.

Ignite is about sharing your interests and passions with the community. Teach us something new, give us insight into a topic that fascinates you, open up with a personal story of success or failure. Enlighten us but make it quick! You'll get to prepare 20 slides, which automatically advance every 15 seconds, for a total of 5 minutes. The lively format makes for fast and fun presentations.

Submissions are now open!
