TEDNYC: Intersections

TED main stage of its New York City headquarters

Brightline is excited to be partnering with TED, for the second time, on a special event at TEDHQ in New York City, when we’ll celebrate some of the world’s most creative thinkers, all striving to figure out how to thrive in a world that sometimes seems to change daily.

In a world hyper-connected by technology and commerce, how can we create a bold and vibrant future? We must dig into our own uniqueness, shout it from the rooftops, and come together to pursue a better world for all. On June 7, 2018, at TEDHQ in New York City, we’ll learn from some of the world’s most innovative thinkers, and understand how Intersections can help us pursue our most ambitious dreams.
