About this event


TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.


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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. 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.


A TED-licensed community showcasing, propagating and supporting African ideas, inventions and innovations for the benefit of humanity. Envisioned to be the leading Pan-African Ideas platform, TEDxMaitama talks have been viewed over 500,000 times over the years on Youtube and we have featured numerous thought leaders including Emir Sanusi Lamido, Aisha Babangida, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili, Prof. Kingsley Muoghalu etc.


The Digital Currency space has been growing at a faster space ever since the launch of Bitcoin. We have witnessed the growth of stable coins as well as meme coins. The Salon will be geared towards understanding cryptocurrency and the opportunities it offers.

TEDxMaitamaSalon is a monthly series of the TEDxMaitama Community where we discuss topics touching our community and the world at large with the aim to educate, enlighten and share worthwhile ideas. The next salon titled 'The Future of Digital Currencies' will feature global speakers from the cryptocurrency and tech community.
