Whereas Ignite Boise was established by volunteers in early 2009 for the purpose of advancing big ideas and sparking a blaze of creativity in the City of Boise’s business and creative community; and
Whereas the unique live presentation format of Ignite Boise brings together a diverse group including the valley’s artists, geeks, entrepreneurs, academics, government officials, and others to share their ideas in a fast-paced feeding frenzy of original thinking that entertains, challenges, and inspires; and,
Whereas the volunteer founders and organizers of Ignite Boise staged an impressive debut event in March of ’09 and have maintained the momentum for their second event, IgniteBoise2, in July of ’09, while utilizing only social media tools and earned media for communication and promotion; and,
Whereas Ignite Boise reflects the truth that Boise is the birthplace of big ideas, the cradle of innovation, and simply the best place to lead a balanced life of meaningful work and inspirational play; and,
NOW, THEREFORE, I, DAVID H. BIETER, Mayor of the City of Boise, do hereby proclaim
