Ignite Annapolis #4


For the fourth time, Annapolis will play host to Ignite Annapolis, a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by people who have a burning idea—and the guts to get onstage and share it with their hometown crowd.

The evening will be emceed by local radio DJ Rob Timm of WRNR and is produced in partnership with Annapolis-based non-profit The Friends Foundation. This follows a successful Ignite Annapolis #3, held in February 2018, which attracted an audience of more than 450 people.

All proceeds from the not-for-profit Ignite Annapolis #4 will go to The Capital Gazette Memorial Scholarship Fund benefiting students of the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism. 

Tickets for Ignite Annapolis #4 will be $10 and will go on sale later this fall. ​​Ignite Talks are an international phenomenon and are now being held in over 100 cities worldwide. Ignite presenters share their personal and professional passions.

If you had five minutes on stage, what would you say to Annapolis? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

The deadline to submit a proposal is January 15, 2019 and selected speakers will be notified by January 31, 2019.
