For those that are not familiar with the initiative, TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to “ideas worth spreading”. Started in 1984 in California as a four-day conference about Technology, Entertainment, Design, TED has broadened its scope and grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives.

TED created a program called TEDx, consisting of local, independently organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

So Money are huge fans of TED and TEDx and we have taken much inspiration from the talks as we have built our business. When we got a call to be involved with TEDxLausanne, it was like a dream come true for us! 

The event takes place on Jan 18th 2013 at IMD in Lausanne and the theme for this year is “What if we do(n’t)”. The aim of this year’s event is to give visibility to people who have dared to make difficult decisions in times of uncertainty, to question conventional wisdom, and to drive their ideas forward in the interest of a better world. Each of our speakers will have their own unique story to tell about perseverance, courage and achievement. 

We are really excited to be involved and we hope to see you there!
