TEDxUKH brings innovation and new ideas to the Kurdistan table

Held at the University of Kurdistan in Hewler, Erbil, TEDxUKH is the first event in Iraq that joins creative talent and innovators in Kurdistan to discuss ideas.

As “x” marked the spot at this special event, bright minds had a great chance to meet with their fellow visionaries from Kurdistan and the whole world, bringing together ideas that only contribute to a better innovative future. This event is set to become an annual event, with a mission to revive passion, recreate a vision, and re-energize tomorrow’s outliers, today, and every day. By becoming an annual event, TEDxUKH will spark even deeper connections and discussion subjects that will set innovation strategies and roadmaps for the years to come.
