Have a big idea that can fit into a small talk?

Ignite Baltimore is seeking speakers for its next event on April 12.

For Ignite Baltimore 19, the lineup of speakers will be made up of all women, said organizer Melissa Macchiavelli. Non-binary/transgender individuals are welcome, she adds.

The lightning talk event features speakers who each get five minutes and 20 slides to light it up. It’s all about ideas, so don’t bring a marketing pitch.

The latest edition, which is the first in about a year, is scheduled to be held at Motor House in Station North.
