EVENT 2023
Flashbacks of the Future

What is TEDxFS?

TEDxFS is a conference that aims to bring together scientists, researchers, and enthusiasts at the Frankfurt School of Finance and Management. 

You will be inspired by a variety of German and international speakers from various fields and backgrounds that are united by following their individual passion. At our event you will meet people with similar, but at the same time very different interests, positions, and hobbies. In this way, sparking conversations will change your mind and, eventually, your life.

After reaching over 500,000 people views on the official TEDx YouTube channel with our first four editions of TEDxFS, we aim to bring the TEDx spirit once again to Frankfurt School on May 6th, 2023.


What is TEDx?

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events created by TED. It was invented to bring people together to share TED-like experiences. Our event is called TEDxFS, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
