Last night, my buddy Kevin and I attended Ignite Portland.Â Ignite is a presentation event that has an innovative way of pitching an idea or message.Â Presenters get 5 minutes and prepare 20 slides and get 15 seconds per slide.Â The PowerPoint is set on a timer so if you don’t finish your slide, you lose out.
The topics range from how to pitch idea to a VC to unwilding (just look it up). Â I have to say that the presenters were way more memorable than their messages.Â Everyone did a fantastic job.
The event was held in downtown PDX at Weiden+Kennedy, just about the coolest facility we could have held this thing.Â Great job to Josh, Raven, and Dawn – you guys were awesome.
It was great to meet some twitter peeps that I’ve met over the last few months including @verso and @ahockley.
