Partners with Launch Memphis
Memphis – The Christian Brothers University (CBU) Alumni Association is co-sponsoring Ignite Memphis 2 in conjunction with Launch Memphis on Wednesday, February 23, at 6:00 p.m. in the University Theater.
Ignite is a fast-paced event, which brings together local thought leaders for an informative and entertaining night of presentations aimed at bettering our community. A global phenomenon, Ignite nights are high-energy evenings of brief talks by people who have an idea and want to share it with their hometown crowd. The event will feature several speakers who are each given five minutes to share their personal and professional passions using 20 PowerPoint slides programmed to move every 15 seconds.
Vance Gamble, Director of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving at CBU, expounds on the importance of the partnership. “Christian Brothers University is a great institution with a rich history of service. Upon entering our arches, students are given the tools to emerge as leaders and leave as alumni ready to serve their respective communities. Ignite Memphis is a great opportunity for the CBU community to network with other local thought leaders who are also passionate about bettering the Greater Memphis community. The CBU Alumni Association is thrilled to partner with Launch Memphis to host this enlightening speaker series.”
Launch Memphis was founded by a group of Memphis area leaders to grow the city’s entrepreneurial community. Through networking events, investor forums and other activities, Launch Memphis hopes to cultivate interest in growing new technology-based businesses in the area.
