The Data Innovation Summit is to host over 30 ignite presentations held by Universities, Startups and innovatieve companies.
If you had five minutes on stage what would you say? Would you talk about your latest passion? Describe the trip of a lifetime? Teach a hack? We’ll find out at in this high-energy, fast-paced, technology show-and-tell.
Any topic is fair game as long as it’s interesting, from technology to culture to business to science fiction. Speakers are limited to 20 slides, which automatically advance after 15 seconds—that’s the fun of Ignite!
The Data Innovation Summit in Brussels is a one day conference gathering all the Belgian actors facilitating data innovation. It is an action packed conference where more than 50 speakers will demonstrate what they do to help us compete in this digital marketplace.
Ignite is the name for a particular type of event that is held throughout the world—organized by volunteers—at which participants speak about their ideas and personal or professional passions according to a specific format. The event holds the motto, “Enlighten us, but make it quick!” The presentations are meant to “ignite” the audience on a subject, whereby awareness, thought, and action are generated on the subjects presented.
At an Ignite event, each speaker has a time limit of five minutes, and must use 20 slides with each slide advancing automatically after 15 seconds
