Ignite’s mission is “Everyone Speaks”. We believe that public speaking builds confidence in individuals and that events like Ignite build community. Our goal is to make it possible for anyone, anywhere, to learn to present their ideas and their stories.

At every Ignite Baltimore, 16 artists, technologists, thinkers and personalities get 5 minutes and 20 slides to spark new conversations and collaborations across cultures and disciplines.

We want to reach even more people while keeping the price of admission as low as possible. We rely on our sponsors to make this possible.  With your help we will be able to host two events per year.

To allow for companies of all sizes to contribute to events, there are several levels of sponsorship.  Sponsorship is per event.  Opportunities remain for our October 16, 2019 event, and more will be available for future events in 2020.
  • PRESENTING PARTNER* - $1,000 +
  • IGNITER* - $750
  • SPARK - $350
  • FRIEND - $150

Other sponsorship amounts, repeat sponsor incentives and custom sponsorships are available. Contact info@ignitebaltimore.com for more information.
