Ignite Berlin

Ignite Berlin is a night of quickfire talks, will be held on March 1st 2010, during the Global Ignite Week. Each presenter is on stage for a total of 5 minutes and presents 20 slides, at 15 seconds each slide. The venue is Festaal Kreuzberg (near U-bahn Kottbusser Tor). Entry is free. Doors will open at 7pm with talks starting from 8pm.

Ignite Berlin is currently requesting proposals for talks. The proposal deadline is 6pm, Sunday February 21st. Talks can be in either English or German (and maybe both?).

"If there’s a topic you are passionate about and you want to tell the world, this is the place to do it. We’re after a mix of funny and serious, social and personal, high and low tech, crafty, webby, environmental, quirky and mainstream. Making us laugh is a good thing, making us think is even better! The only thing we insist on is No Sales Pitches."

You can see videos from past talks on the Ignite Berlin website to see what you are up against.
