With two independently organized TED events coming to Nigeria this July, we can’t wait to see innovation and disruptive technology from Nigeria soon.
TED conferences gather the world’s leading thinkers and doers who are devoted to the converging fields of Technology, Entertainment and Design and have become “the ultimate brain spa” for everyone who participates.
In fact, what adds to the excitement and inspiration is an extraordinary audience and speaker line-up made up of Internet pioneers, entrepreneurs, movie producers, architects, creative directors, CEOs, authors, investors, celebrities, philanthropists and thought leaders.
In acknowledgement of the consistent efforts of the average Nigerian person to outdo himself, TEDxVictoriaIsland has been themed “Recreating our World”, and will be hosting a diverse selection of inspiring speakers from Nigeria focusing on edutainment, information technology and community development.
