Ignite NYC

6:30 p.m.

The New School is pleased to welcome Ignite NYC back to Tishman auditorium for their latest installment of rapid-fire presentation by some of NYC's best, brightest and most creative. Ignite NYC cultivates a vibrant community of artists, technologists, entrepreneurs, and big thinkers to connect, share ideas, start new projects, and step up to this challenge: Enlighten us, but make it quick! The talks are sometimes funny, sometimes brilliant, and always thought provoking.

The theme for this installment of Ignite NYC is: Fails, Facepalms, and Spinouts: Stories from the Other Side of Failure.

About Ignite NYC
Ignite NYC is a volunteer organization dedicated to: identifying and introducing the city's most creative, enterprising and up & coming personalities, in an 'intellectual house-party' setting, to share big ideas and challenge the status quo. Ignite NYC is part of an international Ignite community which includes Ignites in Portland, Boston, Montreal, Sydney, Munich, Paris, Bucharest, London, and dozens more. The Ignite format was founded by Brady Forrest and Bre Pettis in Seattle in 2006 with the support of O'Reilly Media. Ignite speakers have gone on to launch successful businesses, win awards and recognition in their fields, meet professional collaborators, speak at other events including TED, and in general make the world a more awesome place.
