Are you ready to Ignite Memphis on October 25?


Englighten us, but make it quick.

presented by

MemphisConnect and LaunchMemphis partner again to bring you Ignite Memphis 5 on Thursday, October 25 at the Bioworks Conference  Center. So prepare for another evening of inspiration and entertainment! And yes, beer.

Have a topic you’re passionate about sharing, and up to the challenge of a 5 minute presentation with 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds? Then submit it here by Friday, October 5 at 6pm. Selected topics will be announced on Thursday, October 11.

What sort of topics are we seeking? Prior Memphis presentations have run the gamut from (flower)bombing blight to why opera doesn’t suck, and from how James Bond killed the martini to human trafficking in Memphis. So whatever is on your mind is fair game, as long as your presentation is PG-13 or tamer.

If you’d prefer to sit back and watch, then tickets are on sale via EventBrite. Early Bird tickets are only $10 and available through October 18; regular tickets will be available online and at the door of the event for $15.
