We’re really looking forward to this year’s Ignite Montreal to be held on February 8th, 2011 as it promises to be a great event. Over 100 cities around the world will be hosting events during the Ignite Global Week (February 7-11, 2011) to allow for the sharing of fresh ideas in the community.

“Death by Powerpoint” is avoided at Ignite as the format is a 20 slide limit with each slide advancing after 15 seconds. Each speaker has a grand total of 5 minutes to deliver their core idea to the audience.

Montreal’s event features such diverse topics as hamburgers, systems biology, red paperclips, sustainable food and playfulness.

Ignite was started in Seattle in 2006 by the superduo of Brady Forrest of O’Reilly Radar and Bre Pettis of Make.

We hope to see you there, but if you can’t make it, you can follow the discussion on Twitter #ignitemtl or view the presentations on the Ignite Montreal Youtube channel once they become available.
