Welcome to TEDxASU!

TEDxASU is excited to announce its signature annual event is back in 2017 as TEDxASU: Innovators. Once again, the ASU and Phoenix communities will gather to celebrate the innovators that have made our community what it is during the past year.

Innovation is the act of taking a new outlook on an old problem. The theme of TEDxASU: Innovators will be focused on the bright minds that are changing the way that the world looks at education, research, and entrepreneurship. These innovators are not only having a meaningful impact on the ASU community, but the world in which we all live.

Join us at the Tempe Center for the Arts on March 22nd, 2017 from 5:30 – 10:00 PM for a night filled with inspiration, science, technology, and thought provoking conversations. Our team is hard at work, crafting a day full of ideas and experiences. We hope you will mark you calendars and plan to join us this spring.

TEDxASU will be an evening packed with unique local experiences that truly showcase what it means to be a part of our community. Together we will unite visionaries that span a plethora of disciplines to share their innovative ideas and spark inspiration in the minds of our audience. We believe in the beauty of ideas, no matter how big or small or when they are acted upon, and their incredible power to enact change in our world. Our speakers represent those exemplary thinkers who feel compelled to change the world through their unique contributions.
