Ignites

Ignites are fun, fast-paced, thought-provoking presentations. This is your opportunity to share your insights and passions with the 19NTC community.

But, there’s a catch: you are strictly limited to five minutes, and 20 slides, which advance automatically every 15 seconds. This is not a sales pitch. It’s a passion pitch. It’s an opportunity to tell your story on the main stage and inspire 2,200 other nonprofit professionals like you.

Are you changing the world?
This year, we’ve set our stage to be a place for you to tell the story of how you’ve used the internet to make an impact – on your organization, your community, or the world. Think really big or think really small; however you’ve harnessed technology, especially the internet, to move your goals and mission forward, we want to hear about it.

We will select 5-7 presenter to share their story from the main stage. All presenters will receive a complimentary 19NTC registration as well as 1:1 coaching and presentation prep from NTEN.
