We’re putting together another round of Ignite Berlin!
While there are plenty of things still to decide and plan, we’d like to share with you already:
Date: Wednesday, 23 May 2012 (to be confirmed)
While we already have some ideas for great speakers, feel free to send us hints and proposals. It’s ok to submit yourself, we won’t tell anyone.
We might look for a sponsor to pay for some drinks. If you want to get involved as a sponsor, let us know through the form above. Thanks!
We’re looking forward to this!
We’ve had some fantastic talk submissions and we’re ready to announce the final lineup schedule for March 1st. Thanks to everyone who sent us a talk proposal. The quality was very high and it was a hard job to choose the final list. The lineup on the night will be as follows:

We’re looking forward to seeing you on the night. Remember to sign up on Facebook and follow @igniteberlin on Twitter for updates. And huge thanks again to all our speakers and talk proposers for making a great free event possible.
Ignite Berlin, a night of quickfire talks, will be held on March 1st 2010, during Global Ignite Week. Each presenter is on stage for a total of 5 minutes (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.
We are now requesting proposals for talks. The proposal deadline is 6pm, Sunday February 21st. Thanks for the great proposals! The schedule will be up soon.
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.
