Welcome to TEDxASU!

TEDxASU would like to thank everyone that attended our second annual signature event in 2017, TEDxASU: Innovators. Once again, the ASU and Phoenix communities gathered to celebrate the innovators that have made our community what it is.

Innovation is the act of taking a new outlook on an old problem. The theme of TEDxASU: Innovators 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.

While the special event has now ended, the talks are still available online and can be streamed from anywhere in the world via YouTube and TED.com. You can find a link to the videos as well as information about the incredible speakers through the Past Events tab of the menu.

We hope that you will join us for future events and share in the exploration of innovative ideas. If you would like to stay informed about future events, you can sign up for our exclusive email list below.
