TEDxColumbiaEngineeringSchool - Columbia University’s independently organized TEDx event – will bring to light ideas worth spreading. A day filled with presentations by some of the foremost minds will seek to spark conversation, thought and productive exchange among bright intellectuals who participate. From organic chemistry to economics, and from engineering to entertainment, the talks will highlight areas that are at the frontiers of innovation today.

Set to be held at the Schapiro Center for Engineering and Physical Science Research of Columbia’s Morningside Heights campus in Manhattan, this pilot edition of TEDx at Columbia University hopes to establish channels of communication between students and professors, between prospective entrepreneurs and veterans. Its theme, Invention to Venture, is ideally suited to introduce to fresh undergraduate and graduate students people who have succeeded in converting their ideas and inventions into successful ventures and enterprises.

On the eighth of April this year, prepare to have your mind blown by impressive success stories that will be told, valuable experience that will be shared, and inspiring messages that will be delivered at TEDxColumbiaEngineeringSchool.
