Theme: Building Big Ideas

This event occurred on
May 4, 2013
11:00am - 4:00pm EDT
(UTC -4hrs)
New York, NY
United States

The event will showcase the different ways in which the awesome people we brush shoulders with every day at NYU are “Building Big Ideas” -- from constructing a school in Harlem to equip young African American boys for success, to defining the mathematical laws which guide the human attraction to rhythm, to outlining the four skill sets crucial to success in Social Entrepreneurship and beyond.

These are some of NYU’s best and brightest, and, far from being a roster of talking heads, they’re all about going out into the world and getting things done.

The mission of TEDxNYU is to "Unite the Global Network of New York University through the Power of Ideas."
