TEDxSanJoseStateUniversity aims to present innovative ideas from an array of leading experts and creative minds to redefine community building.

The Dinner Table is representative of human connections: innate connections (hunger) and intellectual connections (ideas/experiences). While bringing the conversations to dinner tables, people will be able to develop conversations comfortably and expand on the speakers’ (or their) ideas. Keeping open communications between is essential to bringing out innovation. Our theme for our speakers will center around the core value of “sharing,”. Our speakers will share their experiences and relate it to how it builds a community up.

Our event’s mission is to broaden the perspective of its audience to strengthen communities through economic, scientific, political, and social change. The event will host 100 attendees and is bringing the public together to inspire and stimulate the minds of students, educators, engineers, entrepreneurs, health professionals, politicians, community advocates, and citizens alike. There’s always room at our dinner table – join us!
