Things are gearing up for Ignite Phoenix #5, and we are starting our formal call for submissions! We have nearly 40 submissions so far already, but want to really spread the word this final month to try and get the most amazing mix possible.  All you need is a few lines about yourself and your idea – you don’t need to make a presentation unless your submission is chosen.

If you know someone with genuine passion, send them the link and tell them to submit! We’re trying to reach new groups and people, so please pass this on liberally. It’s 100% free and 99.9% painless.

Submission Deadline is Friday, October 2nd. You can submit your talk on our handy, dandy form.


Tickets will be available on Tuesday, October 20th. We are still working on the details, but we will post them as soon as we know specifics.

Ignite Phoenix itself will be November 3rd, at the Tempe Center for the Arts. We’re coming back here one more time before we head back out to other venues and cities, and are looking forward to filling the theater with another great show.


We’re starting our call for sponsors, so if you know someone who would like to sponsor an awesome community event and get their name in front of several hundred smart, savvy, creative people please send us a note at
