LaunchMemphis and MemphisConnect bring together local thought leaders for an informative and entertaining night of presentations aimed at bettering our community. A global phenomenon, Ignite nights are “a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by people who have an idea—and the guts to get onstage and share it with their hometown crowd….Ignite is a force for raising the collective IQ and building connections in each city…. And, via streaming and archived videos of local talks, local Ignites share all that knowledge and passion with the world.”
