EngenuitySC Announces Ignite 2011 Speakers

Natalie Brown - Director, Alternacirque
EngenuitySC is excited to announce its speakers for Ignite 2011, taking place November 16th from 5:15pm-8:00pm at The Zone. Like the video released in August featuring Mayor Benjamin, President Pastides, and some of Columbia's best entrepreneurs and grassroots leaders, this year's speakers represent a diverse array of Columbia's entreprenurial talent and embody the event's theme of start something.

Featuring the Liberty Fellowship Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the year and a circus and dance company, each speaker will have approximately 400 seconds each to share with their audience their story of how their passion drove them to start their own successful enterprise. However, unlike most conferences in Columbia, the speakers will be able to use the time to present in their exciting and unique way. Whether it's showing off their award-winning guitar effects pedals, sharing their knowledge as a leading traveling educator, or just simply telling their own compelling, personal stories of starting a business from scratch, Ignite is sure to have a story to enthrall (or entertain) you.

Tickets and sponsorships still available, but selling quickly. 

Ignite 2011 Ideas Contest closes October 28th.
