An Ignite Talk is a short presentation on a specific topic. You will have 5 minutes to pitch a certain idea, a project you started or anything else you deeply care about. Afterwards, you will have up to 20 minutes to connect with your audience and get feedback from them.
Normally it would be used to call for action, to search for people to join the project or to just get the word out. You can organize a recording of the pitch yourself.
If you hold a 5-minute Ignite Talk at re:publica you will be featured on our website. However you won't get a free ticket for the conference.
