Ignite Detroit #3 will be held on April 25th at Sound Board inside the MotorCity Casino Hotel in Detroit.
You must be 21+ to attend.
Ignite Detroit is a night of presentations with a twist. Presenting on a subject of their choice, speakers have exactly five minutes to enlighten and inspire their community using twenty slides that auto advance every fifteen seconds. Ignite is quick, fun, and smart.
Ignite Detroit is made up of 15 speakers doing their 5 minute talk. The speakers are selected by the community and the event organizers. Speakers will be announced on Apr 16th.
Admission to Ignite Detroit is $5.00 (plus PayPal fees). The proceeds from all ticket sales will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities Detroit.
No refunds will be given for this event! Come on... it's for charity. :)
