Chelsea will participate in the world wide event known as “Global Ignite Week” during the week of February 7-11.
Fifty+ Ignites will take place in cities around the world. Upwards of 10,000 entrepreneurs, technologists, DIYers, creative professionals, and enthusiastic knowledge-seekers will gather in local pubs, theaters, and other convivial venues for an evening that is a unique blend of networking, information, and fun, encapsulated in the Ignite motto: “Enlighten us, but make it quick.”
The first Ignite took place in Seattle in 2006, and since then the event has become an international phenomenon, with gatherings in Helsinki, Finland; Paris, France; New York, New York; and many other locations. Chelsea is the smallest city to host an Ignite event.
Chelsea’s first Ignite was held September 9, 2010 at the SRSLY stage in the Clocktower complex.
