“Ideas, innovations, and inspiration,” TEDxDetroit is equal parts business conference, tech expo, and arts festival. The annual, one-day event celebrates what’s working and what’s next by shinning a light on the people who are creating the future. TEDxDetroit features live TEDtalks, hands-on exhibits in TEDxLabs, TED videos, visual arts, music performances and more. It’s all designed to spark innovative ideas, foster collaboration, and inspire creativity.
Since 2009, TEDxDetroit has featured more than 250 doctors, filmmakers, educators, engineers, poets and other game changers on-stage. This year, 4,000 professionals and students from around the Great Lakes will come together to stretch the boundaries of what is possible.
Past TEDxDetroit speakers have included Pixar director Jim Murphy, NASA planetary scientist Cathy Olkin, graphic designer Aaron Draplin, and ESPN anchor Jemele Hill plus the founder of Baby Einstein, Forbes woman of the year, the inventor of a blade-less wind turbine, two college students who teach app development to teens in juvenile detention, and a 7-year old who started a lemonade stand that raised thousands for charity.
