TEDxESADE: Back to the Future
By Thomas Macaulay
Run by students at ESADE Business School, TEDxESADE brings together the diverse ESADE community over a mutual love of innovation and entrepreneurship. Embracing the TED mantra of “Ideas Worth Spreading,” the event was established to promote the development of future innovators through inspiring talks. A selection of speakers including a variety of experts from ESADE faculty, alumni and staff aim to spark discussion among the student community to stimulate budding entrepreneurs.
The title of this year’s edition of TEDxESADE is “Back to the Future.” Innovators are constantly searching for the details that allow them to connect the dots. And as Steve Jobs told Stanford students in his 2005 commencement speech: “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.” More than 100 people will bring their own stories from the past to the event to spread innovative ideas for the future, all with the goal of preparing the innovators of tomorrow.
