About Us

Amsterdam is a city in motion. Its ability to adapt and act for the better is what defines its history, present and future. This is because of the people who inhabit it, the ones who are constantly striving to make a change. Being in this constant state of flux is what makes it thrive. It’s what makes a city act. 

In the spirit of TED’s mission of ideas worth spreading to local communities around the globe, TEDx brings people together to share an inspirational event experience. Organised by curious individuals from the local community, TEDxAmsterdam features live speakers who seek to spark deep conversations and connections. TEDxAmsterdam is organised independently under license from TED.

Impact Program

We passionately believe in the power of ideas to change lives and ultimately, the world. That’s why we want to support novel, early stage ideas that may have such positive impact.

The Impact Program is an opportunity to bring forth a prototype of a solution regarding a real-world problem. Offered by TEDxAmsterdam, this journey functions as a catalyst for positive change. Each year we source bold ideas with the potential to address pressing matters. We look for ideas that cover a wide range of fields— from global health to climate change to social justice to education. By training, empowering and supporting great minds we facilitate new connections, co-creations and help advance brilliant ideas into concrete next steps together with our partners and members.

The program consists of a variety of curated workshops focused on storytelling and business development, a presence at the TEDxAmsterdam events and even the chance to present on a TEDx stage
