In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

Anna-Sophie Hartvigsen

Founder of Female Invest
Anna-Sophie is an author, public speaker, and entrepreneur working to financially empower women. Her interest in finance was sparked when she started investing at the age of 19. However, she quickly realized that investing as a young woman can be a lonely experience. At the age of 22, she therefore founded Female Invest, which has already helped more than 10.000 women getting started in investing. Female Invest is Denmark’s largest investment network for women, and the company is now expanding throughout Scandinavia. During her talk, Anna will touch upon why it is important to increase female participation and representation in financial markets, how this can be done, and what impact it will have on society.

Julia Evelyn Larsen

Co-founder of CryptoWomen CPH
Julia is the co-founder of CryptoWomen CPH, a community for women interested in blockchain. She has interned at the Danish Foreign Ministry’s Innovation Department in Germany and has seen first hand how new technology quickly goes from being perceived as transformative to being captured by big corporations, which then dictate its development. Using tech for good and making tech accessible for all are her core focus areas, and her current project is setting up a coding group for women. Her several years worth of being deeply invested in blockchain technology have led her to speak at events such as Roskilde Festival, multiple tech-conferences, and at Google. This culminated in her master’s thesis on Blockchain for Social Good, for which she won the CBS PRME prize. In her talk she will share these insights with you to clarify how the technology has promise for social impact, but is currently being privatized and under-explored.
