Learn and Be Inspired

The Opus College of Business is pleased to sponsor Ignite Minneapolis, bringing together local thinkers, writers, designers, coders, makers and entrepreneurs for an evening of rapid-fire talks given by people with a burning passion for their topic. Some talks are serious science, others are pure satire – but each talk must be about a compelling idea or story. Attendees come to learn and to be inspired.

The Ignite format works like this: Each speaker prepares a deck of 20 slides which auto-advance every 15 seconds, giving each speaker five minutes to give his or her talk. The rapid-fire pace of this format often makes for a frenetic delivery, and the variety of topics means the audience is unlikely to ever get bored. The motto of Ignite is: "Enlighten us, but make it quick."

Tickets go on sale in two waves:

  • WAVE 1: Thursday, October 24, at 10 a.m.
  • WAVE 2: Sunday, November 3, at 7 p.m.
