Harrisonburg Creatives, Entrepreneurs, Community Members to Kick Off Ignite Harrisonburg

Ignite is a “a force for raising the collective IQ and building connections in each city,” according to its global website. First started in Seattle, Washington, this movement has spread to over 100 cities throughout the world. Ignite is now in Harrisonburg… aptly called Ignite Harrisonburg!

On Tuesday, March 20th, the kick-off event for Ignite Harrisonburg will take place at Ruby’s Lounge, in the Clementine’s basement. Creatives, entrepreneurs, and community members in and around Harrisonburg will gather to hear (and give, if desired) 5-minute talks about projects, ideas, and personal or professional passions.

If you would, indeed, like to present for five minutes, simply submit your information at Ignite Harrisonburg’s website. (They also have a new Facebook page.)

Pursuing this unique form of social entrepreneurship, Ignite Harrisonburg will host an initial series of three events on the third Tuesday of the next three months – March 20, April 17, and May 15. All events are free and open to the public.

Those who attend Ignite Harrisonburg events will be able to vote on a People’s Choice Award, and each night’s winner will receive a downtown gift basket! If you ever cannot attend, fear not. After each event, videos of the presentations will be made available on igniteshow.com.
