    Ignite Denver – Like Whiskey? Like Hammocks?

    Like Whiskey? Like Hammocks?

    You can walk out of Ignite Denver 6 with each if you conquer the speed round!

    We’re going to have 3 people do the speed round (Not the 2 we initially thought). Each will present the same deck, with a different ‘theme’ than the original presenter.

    No one goes home empty handed, but best bring your A game 🙂

    First place is a bottle of Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey

    Second place is an awesome Trek Light Gear Hammock!

    Third place will be something we pick up with some of the donation money we collect.

    Don’t forget to RSVP! Ignite Denver 6 is coming up fast!

    Ignite Denver – Drinking and Driving sucks

    Consider this the Ignite Denver PSA.

    Drinking and driving is bad, mmmkay, so don’t do it. There’s plenty of options available to you. Namely the light rail.

    The light rail station isn’t close, but it ain’t far.

    There’s also cabs, which the Rackhouse will call for you no problem. We want everyone to have fun, but just be responsible 🙂

    Thanks, see you March 2nd! Don’t forget to RSVP 🙂

    Ignite Denver – Charity Rocks!

    Part of the Global Ignite Week thing is charity.

    So with that in mind, and with what is hopefully the first of a recurring theme for Ignite Denver, we’ll be donating the remainder of the donated money from Ignite Denver 6 to The Bridge Project.

    As we’ve said before, our costs in running Ignite Denver are low, we buy beer for the presenters, and prizes when we need to. The rest, we’re donating.

    The Bridge Project is a great local charity here in Denver.

    The more we collect in donations, the more we have to donate, so don’t be shy everyone, it’s a great cause!

    Remember, every $5 donation, also gets your a beer ticket.

    RSVP now for Ignite Denver 6! March 2nd!

    Ignite Denver Speed Round Competition!!

    During our last committee meeting, we were talking about ways to hand out prizes, and fun competitions to do. We came up with the Speed round, a new take on the mystery deck idea we’ve used twice before. We wanted to take the idea of the mystery deck and put it in the hands of the audience.

    Here’s how it’s gonna work!

    At the first intermission, before our comedian takes the stage for some funny, everyone will vote on which slide deck from part 1 they’d like to see as the speed round.

    At the end of part 2 we’ll call for volunteers (2 of them) to come up and deliver the speed round, using the chosen deck, but telling a different story. When each contestant gets up the tell the crowd their ‘theme’ and then away we go.

    Here’s how the speed round is speedy 🙂

    It’s the same 20 slides, but it’s 2/3 faster, that means each slide is only up for 5 seconds. so the entire deck is done in 100 seconds (just under 2 minutes)

    The crowd votes for the winner with applause.

    The winners will win some awesome prizes, we’re still working on those.

    So when you’re sitting in the audience watching the awesome presentations, keep in mind which you’d like to see in 1/3 time!

    Hurry up and submit a topic, time’s running out.

    Ignite Denver 6 – Bringing the funny!

    She’s often seen on stage at Comedy Works’ “New Talent Tuesdays”

    It’s gonna be a great intermission, worthy of an event of it’s own, but it’s just for us between presentations!
