We are incredibly proud to count TedX Tehran among our partners. After Christopher delivered his first Ted Talk “OPPORTUNITIES AT THE CROSSROAD BETWEEN GUTENBERG AND ZUCKERBERG” as a participant himself in December 2017 at this extraordinary place on earth, our paths have crossed again and again with licensee and organizer Reza Ghiabi and his team despite Covid-19. TEDxTehran supports the mission of Ideas Worth spreading and is a local, independently organized event licensed by TED that brings people together in Tehran to share a TED-like experience. TED was launched in 1984 as a conference in California and has since championed world-changing ideas through numerous initiatives. At a TED conference, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the speech of a lifetime in 18 minutes or less. TED speakers include Sheryl Sandberg, Bill Gates, Elizabeth Gilbert, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Brian Greene, Isabel Allende and former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

In 2019, our CIO Christopher also had the opportunity to participate in and around the TEDx Königsallee event in Düsseldorf.

In 2019, some 500 enthusiasts found their way to Düsseldorf’s Tonhalle to listen to the ideas and talks under the theme “Outside the Bubble”. And in 2021, the first digital edition of TEDxKoenigsallee will revolve around the topic of “Limitless”. TEDx Königsallee stands for curiosity, diversity, inspiration, momentum and transformation.
