On 1 September 2016 TEDxRotterdam organized an ‘open mic’ event in Venture Cafe Rotterdam for the first time. We organized this to provide a stage for every citizen of Rotterdam who has a great, innovative and/ or creative idea for the city of Rotterdam.

Thank You


Thank you all for having attended our Open Mic event! Our audience, jury, hosts, and last but not least, our speakers – because of you we were able to have a successful Open Mic resulting in two winners! 

The Winners


Congratulations to Stefanie, who will take the stage and give an official TEDxTalk at our main TEDxRotterdam event on Nov. 4, and to Yasmin who will be speaking at our Speak Your Mind event on Sep. 27! Thank you for sharing your ideas worth sharing!
