If you had five minutes to say something to the people of Cheyenne, what would you say?
Well think it over, because we are giving you a chance to say it. Ignite Cheyenne is a place where people from Cheyenne and southeastern Wyoming can come to share ideas, hobbies, socialize and have a great time. Ignite Cheyenne is about showcasing your ideas and your passion. Both of those things can make Cheyenne an even better place! We want to hear you talk at Ignite Cheyenne.

Welcome everyone, and thanks for stopping by to find out about Ignite Cheyenne! Below you’ll find answers to some common questions about Ignite events and Ignite Cheyenne.
What is Ignite, exactly?
On the website, Ignite is called a “global movement”, here we just like to think of it as a group of people gathering around to share stories, tips and tricks that make life and work easier, and a forum for people to talk about their passions.
How does it work?
Each speaker at Ignite will get 20 slides to tell their story. However, there’s a catch: each slide will auto-advance after 15 seconds, making the total time of the talk 5 minutes. The format of the slides embodies the Ignite tagline “Enlighten us, but make it quick.”
How much does it cost?
Ignite Cheyenne is free to the public, but you do need to sign up for a free ticket. You can sign up for tickets starting at 9:30 am on Friday September 3, 2010 here. Having you register helps us by letting us know how many people to expect, and in turn how much food and beer to provide (also free) at the event.
What do I need to do?
Just show up. If you enjoy yourself, make sure to tell your friends and come back next time (we are shooting to coincide with Global Ignite Week for Ignite Cheyenne 2). If you’re feel really brave, give a talk!
We will be uploading pictures from the event to our Flickr page and the talks to our Youtube Channel
