• Meet NASA iTech at Ignite the Night

    We know that innovation takes place everywhere — in all corners of the globe. In 2019, we are creating more opportunities to connect with innovators and enthusiasts directly. To that end, the NASA iTech team is hosting Ignite the Night events in a few select communities in the US, inviting innovators and enthusiasts to come meet NASA, learn about the NASA iTech program, apply to participate, and for those selected, pitch your idea on stage to an esteemed panel of NASA technologists, industry experts, and investors.


    Innovators: Why should you apply to be part of an Ignite the Night event?

    • Presenting at these events is a tremendous opportunity to introduce your technology to NASA and industry leadership, as well as the rest of the tech community.
    • Selected presenters will also get meaningful mentorship hours with the iTech team before the event.
    • Winners of Ignite the Night get fast-tracked into the Top 25 Semifinalists for the current Cycle, ensuring your technology will be evaluated by NASA’s Center Chief Technologists and increasing your chances of being selected as one of the Top 10 Finalists to present at the current 2019 Cycle Forum.


    Application links for each event are below. All events are open to the public but you must RSVP. Any Ignite the Night submission will automatically enter you into the current Cycle application pool.
