About this event

There is a rising tension between the tech startup ecosystem and the pre-existing residents and social infrastructure of the city of San Francisco. At the geographical heart of these shifting tides is Market Street, a major thoroughfare that splits the city diagonally and houses tech geeks, drug addicts, activists, hipsters, and people who are a combination of any of the above. As we witness the creation of a continually changing, inimitably eccentric urban history in real time, how can we make sure that technology and innovation are helping this transformation occur in a responsible way that benefits the entire community?

At TEDxMarketStreet, we're spotlighting creative ways of tackling the income disparity in gentrifying cities by inviting powerful voices to the stage in order to catalyze this important conversation.

We hope you can join us.
