    Ideas Worth Spreading


    TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

    TEDX=Independently Organized TED Event

    In the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading,” the TEDx program helps communities, organizations and individuals produce TED like events at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis, under a free license from TED

    TEDxStateHouseRoad : A New Dawn In Africa

    Do you ever wonder how Africa will look like 50 years to come? One thing is for sure; our population keeps increasing and with technology the wheels have been set in motion and the potential emergence of African countries as potential economic hub is underway. The question is. Can Africa translate its huge population growth into economic development and improved quality of life? While our leadership is still stuck where we were 50 years ago, our young generation is embracing technology by founding revolutionary companies.
    Can Africa jump the series and create wealth in the world through technology-based and knowledge-based industries. While there are a lot of positives, these changes are uprooting the traditional social fabric and creating new power structures.

    Much remains unknown and the story is still unfolding, that’s why through the spirit of ideas worth spreading, At TEDxStateHouseRoad event, our speakers will combine to spark deep discussion on the theme a new Dawn for Africa, with a live audience of 100 people. We believe that a platform to share stories and spread ideas of transformation in much of Africa can bring mostly positive results. Join us and listen to inspiring speakers share their vision of change. Our guiding principle for this platform is to preserve your intent and to maintain a story’s look and feel whenever possible.
