TEDxMaastricht 2017The process of Inception
We at TEDxMaastricht think that planting a seed is just the beginning.
The quality and impact of an idea is largely formed by the right soil, breeding ground or pressure cooker. If the environment is nourishing and the hand of time is on your side, your idea will be able to evolve into a mature concept.
Because for us, inception also means the beginning of a new (ad)venture and taking action.
We therefore challenge our speakers to not only share their success, but also to inspire our audiences to take action and initiative by showing them the context in which their idea was founded. This brings the hero TEDx speaker closer to the individual trying to take action.
