Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
TEDxNortheasternU is a student-run organization that brings together the Northeastern community to share and discuss innovative ideas, breakthrough technologies, and groundbreaking research. Our events feature local speakers who are leaders in their fields, sharing their knowledge and experience in a series of engaging and thought-provoking talks.
Through our events, we aim to inspire and educate our audience, while fostering a sense of community and collaboration among attendees. Join us at our next event to be a part of the conversation and discover new ways of thinking about the world around us.
What is TEDx?
TEDx is a grassroots initiative, created in the spirit of TED’s overall mission to research and discover “ideas worth spreading.” TEDx brings the spirit of TED to local communities around the globe through TEDx events. These events are organized by passionate individuals who seek to uncover new ideas and to share the latest research in their local areas that spark conversations in their communities.
TEDx events include live speakers and recorded TED Talks, and are organized independently under a free license granted by TED. These events are not controlled by TED, but event organizers agree to abide by our format, and are offered guidelines for curation, speaker coaching, event organizing and more. They learn from us and from each other. More than 3000 events are now held annually.
