About this event

We would like to find the speakers who have their passion and goal that can extend our society frame because we thought that existing formula or idea can’t develop our society. Although some people think “they are strange!”(We give a name “they” to “Geek”), their own idea can extend our frame if the idea is worthy. Therefore, we intend to invite the speaker who has worthy idea and it can be spread through TEDxSNU
