At the 2nd annual TEDxBoston event we brought together storied professors, inspiring entrepreneurs, forward thinkers, radical architects, intriguing designers, brilliant scientists and astounding performers who make the greater Boston area one of the most exciting and promising cities in which to launch a business or a social enterprise.

We heard new ways of thinking about democracy and globalization in the 21st century. We learned about breakthroughs in treating spinal cord injury, fabricating a home, and harnessing the ocean’s power. We were motivated by designers and social entrepreneurs who are accelerating innovation in Boston and improving the lives of citizens around the world, and we were amazed by artists who use music and movement to inspire us all.
