Ignite was started in Seattle in 2006 by Brady Forrest of O’Reilly Radar and Bre Pettis of Make. Since then hundreds of five minute talks have been given across the world. Besides Seattle, there are thriving Ignite communities in Portland, Sydney, NYC and a lot more.
The idea is simple: presenters are required to stick to a rigid format of 20 slides, each of which changes automatically after 15 seconds, ensuring that each presentation is exactly 5 minutes long. The format forces presenters to think long and hard about every slide.
With great pleasure we are happy to announce our fantastic venue for the next Ignite London event, as part of Global Ignite Week 2011! 93 Feet East in Shoreditch will be our venue sponsor for Ignite London 4 on Tuesday 8th February at 7pm.
We are really ecstatic about this venue because it provides us with even greater capacity, has a fantastic atmosphere, is more central and offers plenty of places for you to dine before or after the event.
93 Feet East is a large independent music venue located in the heart of Brick Lane, converted from the Old Truman Brewery and plays host to upcoming and established acts. They celebrated their tenth anniversary this year and continue to be one of the most popular independent live, club and bar venues in London.
After visiting the main hall, we’re certainly looking forward to seeing a lot more of you on the night, even more so from the balcony. We feel that we’ve found a new home for Ignite London. Don’t forget to follow our blog and social media links found in the sidebar, to hear about when tickets will be released.
