TEDxHHL is a nonprofit student organization dedicated to empowering individuals through ideas. TEDxHHL–where x stands for independently organized event and HHL is abbreviation for Handelshochschule Leipzig (HHL)–holds the official TEDx license to host a TEDx conference. Founded in 2014 by students, TEDxHHL has sought to spark inspiring and entrepreneurial ideas within the vibrant student community of Leipzig.
TEDxHHL aims to foster an environment for spreading ideas, with live speakers and TED-Talks videos, serving as a means to inspire deep discussions and connections between individuals from various backgrounds. In turn, we hope that the HHL community will be challenged by the TEDxHHL experience and be motivated to make a positive impact on our world. The TED foundation provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, such as TEDxHHL, are self-organized. All speeches during the conference will be filmed and posted for free on the TED website and the TEDx -YouTube-Channel. The second TEDxHHL event will be held at the "Werk 2 - Kulturfabrik e.V.” on the 14th of October 2016.
