Submit a Proposal for Ignite: Lean Startup

Ignite is a fast-paced presentation style that gives you the opportunity to share your lessons learned with a room full of drunk entrepreneurs. But there's a catch: <b>your presentation is limited to exactly five minutes and twenty slides--and those slides advance automatically every 15 seconds.</b> Like running a startup, giving an Ignite preso is a harrowing experience that feels great to have done and garners you lots of admirers. We encourage you to apply.

Ignite: Lean Startup will take place in SF on Saturday, May 21 in the evening; exact time and place are TBD. We're looking primarily for lean startup-themed presentations: case studies, tips and flame-out stories that other people can learn from. NB: Narrow ideas and distinct stories usually work better than big picture approaches; humor helps a lot. A few choice examples of the format:
