The Next Ignite: June 24th

Posted on 25 April 2010 by IgniteBC

The April 15th event was a massive success, and with it came many requests for another one!  So, without further adieu, preparations are now officially underway for Ignite Vancouver II.  The next event is June 24th, and it promises to be a ground breaker on may levels!

Wanna Earn $100 a MINUTE?  Read on!

The next event will be a little different in that we will be awarding a prize of $500 to the best presentation of the night! Presentations will be judged based on votes from the audience via a Twitter polling solution.  Everyone in the audience can vote for each presenter once.  50% of the vote will be audience generated, and 50% of the vote will come from the Ignite Organizing Team.  If you would like to participate in this event, please submit your presentation idea ASAP because its a first-come-first-served basis!  We will publish the final lineup on May 25th, and we will require your FINAL presentation to be submitted to us by June 10th.  The sooner you complete your submission, the better your chances of getting in and getting the pick of where you want to be in the final lineup.

Following the results of April 15th

Posted on 25 April 2010 by IgniteBC

Some folks might be interested to know about the results of the April 15th event, and so here we go:

This was a startup event, and as such, demanded a few additional funds to get things rolling.  The net result is that we lost about $500 from the overall proceeds, with the bulk of the revenues going to simple things like printing the stationery, localized Google advertising, signage, Meetup.com membership fees, Eventbrite and Paypal service fees, web hosting, a cash box, a battery pack, a high speed SD card for the camera, and some software to support the video capture and archiving component.  We already had some things like the camera, a tripod and so on – so these assets were not included in the startup costs.

Despite the loss position, we still donated $100 to Union Gospel Mission, as we set out on this project with a commitment to donate a minimum of $100 or 10% of the proceeds, whichever is greater.  We would have done more, but that’s where we came in.

Thanks to all for your strong support, and we look forward to having you all come out again at all of the future events!

Sponsorship: An Overview

Posted on 23 February 2010 by IgniteBC

IgniteBC is a group of professionals that voluntarily organize and promote the Ignite presentation formats.  In most cases, expenses are either covered by the individual organizers, or are modestly offset by ticket sales – the balance of which goes to charity.  By choosing to support an IgniteBC event, you are aligning yourself with several different audiences which include:

  • Young professionals seeking an outlet and sources of feedback for their ideas
  • A global community of a wide range of public speakers
  • A network of connected professionals in support of their peers
  • A community driven event that takes place every couple months that continues to grow in reach and influence

Support is accepted in a manner of formats that is most convenient to you.  You can start small, and simply attend an event.  Your attendance helps to validate the merit and draw of IgniteBC events to the participating venue.  If you wish to help out, you can also volunteer your time – which is always appreciated since we are all folks that have families and long commutes after work.  You can also go one step farther by donating prizes for contestants, guest presenters and door prizes.   And then there’s just good old fashioned money.   Any financial support is captured through our Event Ticketing Solution: EventBright.  Click here to view available sponsorship packages, or to buy a ticket for the next event.

Contact us today to find a place when you can fit into the mix at IgniteBC!
