Welcome to TEDxNakaseroWomen on the web!

The event featured the live stream, local and international speakers, and entertainers as we joined in a celebration of female inventors and designers, thinkers and makers, local problem-solvers and global leaders who are changing the world today. Our theme remains: Invented Here.


ABOUT TED


TED is a global foundation devoted to Ideas worth Spreading. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, and Design. Since then, its scope has become ever broader.

With its two annual conferences, video website TED.com, initiatives and community projects, TED is now a platform and a global movement focused on meaningful change through the power of ideas.

TEDxNakaseroWomen is a TED.com Licensed event with a mission to create change through spreading great ideas.

TEDxNakaseroWomen is independently organized around the live webcast of TEDWomen a one – day event curated by Ted and Pat Mitchell. This Year TEDWomen will take place on December 5th 2013 in San Francisco.

TEDxNakaseroWomen will be held on December 6th 2013 and will feature the live stream as well as local speakers plus entertainment. Time: 5.00 p.m. – 10.00 p.m.

Among these shall be a suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances on a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder plus provoke conversations that matter.
