TEDxBuffalo 2015

TEDxBuffalo 2015 is just days away. This Thursday, October 22, a number of highly influential and dedicated Buffalonians will be talking about their instrumental work and how it relates to their passions.

Each year, TEDxBuffalo tracks down people who are doing their part to help turn this city around, from medical research to brewing, and just about every other industry in-between.

If you’re not familiar with TEDxBuffalo, then get to know the volunteers who are behind the speaking initiative. Also see some of the 2015 speakers’ promotional videos below. Stay tuned for future speaking events by visiting the TEDxBuffalo website and signing up for the newsletter, Tweets, etc.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
