This is your chance to own a piece of history, join us.

Our event is called TEDxRaval, where x = independently organized TED event.

TED was born in 1984 out of the observation by Richard Saul Wurman of a powerful convergence between Technology, Entertainment and Design. The first TED included demos of the Sony compact disc and new 3D graphics from Lucasfilm. Several influential members of the digerati community were there, including Nicholas Negroponte and Stewart Brand.

TEDxRaval speakers are leaders of technology and innovation.

The Arts and Design Promotion (FAD) will host over 100 members, both men and women working in technology, from corporate to mid-level startup to early-stage startup.

Who should attend? Anyone thinking about starting a startup, or generally interested in technology and innovation.
