Ignite 22 Speaker List & FAQ

Let us preface this by saying that, being two days out from our event, we obviously didn’t announce the speakers in a timely fashion this time around, and for that we are very sorry. But on the bright side: This Ignite is going to be nothing like you’ve ever attended, and we truly think because of that, it’s going to be one of the best ones yet! Tickets are, predictably, sold out already, but we recommend checking out igniteticketswap.com to see if there are any available from the community.

If you haven’t heard, Ignite 22 is a little out of the ordinary. Containing our typical fantastic sparks and peppered with delightful short films, we’re excited to pivot from our regularly scheduled program to bring you something new, experimental and hopefully, amazing. You best put seat belts on your ears, cause we’re going to take them for the ride of their lives. And now without further ado, here are our speakers:

  • Sarai Snyder – Women: Bikes and Tech – Tools for Change
  • Alex Hanifin – Gluten Girl
  • Fractal Tribe – Acro: The What and Why our our Crazy Risky Love Affair
  • Wade Newsom – Participate
  • Timmy O’Neil – Bookends of Being
  • Isaac Savitz – Risk, What is it Good For?

Where does the money go?
