The Greater Lansing area is buzzing once again. Home to Michigan’s state capitol and one of the nation’s largest research universities, Greater Lansing is reinventing itself. A teeming hub of innovation fueled by a drive toward progress, local entrepreneurs are taking advantage of a growing array of business incubators, a vibrant social media culture and a fervent “local first” attitude to go from start-up to success.

The true value of TEDxLansing is in the experience. You’re going to be surrounded by people who are passionate about big ideas and making the changes necessary to ensure a prosperous future for Lansing and the state of Michigan. You’ll hear speaker after speaker talk about what inspires them to be more and do more everyday. And in the process, you may just find their big ideas help you generate your own.

Simply put, TEDxLansing aims to engage and challenge audiences with ideas worthspreading.

In its third year, TEDxLansing joins forces with the Capital City Film Festival for four days of film, music, technology, entertainment and design throughout Lansing.
