I was honored to be asked to speak at the first ever Ignite Boulder. It took place in a classroom on the CU campus with maybe thirty people showing up. Since that time, the event has grown in magnitude and now sells out venues like the Boulder Theater and the Chautauqua Auditorium, with more than a thousand in attendance. It's one of my favorite events in Boulder and the community support is unlike any other.
