Two Great New Ideas: TED-style talks on provoking topics that will change how you think about your work.
"The best way to have a good idea is to have a lot of ideas."

Costa Michailidis: "Attitudes of Great Innovators." We often hear successful people talk about attitude as being key to their success, but what do they mean specifically? In this interactive session, we will explore curiosity, an attitude which is at the foundation of being innovative.
In 2010, Costa co-founded Innovation Bound to cultivate creativity and innovation across sectors, and to solve new and meaningful problems in the world. He has organized innovation tournaments inside of Fortune 500s, guided NASA’s astrobiology roadmap creation, worked on life science education reform, and contributed to many other projects in science and business. Costa made his first appearance at TEDx at the United Nations in New York in 2013, and continues to speak at conferences and companies on creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship, in order to nurture the type of courage and curiosity that accelerate innovation and drive progress.
