What is Ignite San Diego?

Ignite San Diego is the ultimate melting pot of ideas and stories, brought to you by San Diego locals. Each presenter has just five minutes to share their passion, story or idea with the audience, with 20 slides that advance every 15 seconds – whether they like it or not! Bwahahahaha.

Challenging? Yes, but’s that’s part of the fun and appeal.

The topics are as unique and interesting as the citizens of San Diego. From the history of micro brews to adapting to life in a wheelchair and everything in between, there’s something for everyone at each Ignite San Diego event.

You may laugh or cry or roll your eyes or jump out of your seat. But one thing is certain – you WILL leave feeling inspired, energized and more connected to your community.
