Ignite was founded in the cold winter of 2006. On December 7th two hundred Seattle geeks settled into a small bar for a night of networking, cool ideas and, of course, a few beers. Ignite was a fact. Since that night, Ignite events have been held around the world. From Dubai to Vancouver, and from Singapore to Albuquerque.
Ignite is fast-paced and merciless, but most of all it's a fun, thought-provoking night, full of fresh ideas and clever insights. Ignite helps build and develop local networks, and serves as a platform for locals to connect offline and have a drink together. What more does one need?
Mediamatic is proud to be hosting the Ignite Amsterdam events. The first one took place at Mediamatic Bank on July 9th, 2010.
