TEDxFortWayne Daniel Epstein The Importance of Being Unreasonable

SPEAKER: Daniel fundamentally believes that entrepreneurship is the answer to nearly all the issues we face today and has dedicated his life accordingly. By the time he received his BA in philosophy he had already started three ventures. Daniel is the co-founder of two Boulder-based companies: Tuition Specialists, focused on making quality education more affordable and SWAE sports, dedicated to conservation & development through eco-tourism. Furthermore, in the summer of 2008, he co-developed and directed a 5-week institute that brought 17 young, aspiring social entrepreneurs from 14 countries together in Boulder to focus on understanding the global context of the issues we face and to study the skill sets needed to address them. For Daniel, business is not business, business is people. He believes in militant transparency and truthfulness in the projects he is a part of and in his everyday life. And if you can't find Daniel working in a local coffee shop he's likely running along the foothills with the love of his life (his dog Kaya). TOPIC: The Importance of Being Unreasonable What is TEDx? In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxFortWayne, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxFortWayne event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
