Welcome at TEDxAmsterdamWomen

 On November 2nd, 2017 TEDxAmsterdamWomen once again brought you speakers from around the world
to inspire you, move you, and engage you to think differently.

At the Koninklijk Instituut voor de Tropen, women (and men) shared their past, present, and future.
They revealed how their fears are the catalyst for change and initiate their power.
They illustrated how they live boundlessly in the present and face the future head on.
And, they shared how their continued faith in their own capabilities helps to define their path forward.

Startup Award

After the smashing success of the previous Startup Award, TEDxAmsterdamWomen will once again offer  a stage to inspiring and high-potential startups. On September 25th, 2017 ten promising startups will have  the opportunityto pitch their idea in front of a jury of specialists, investors, press and consultants.  It’s a chance to showcase your idea(s), garner feedback, and generate awareness. 

Sorry, it's not possible anymore to register for the Startup Award 2017. 


In December 2010, Amsterdam hosted one of the first TEDxWomen-events in the world. TEDxWomen is a global conference that provides a stage for women to inspire; it specifically focuses on the unique way  in which women contribute to global change and thus helps to reshape the future.

Since the first event, TEDxAmsterdamWomen has annually produced and delivered a stunning and inspiring conference, bringing forth well-known and critically acclaimed speakers such as Mei Lin Ang, Steve McCurry, Mariéme Jamme, Harriette Verweij, Naomi Feil, Sarah Britton, Corrine Vigreux and many more.

TEDxAmsterdamWomen events are not subsidized and are run on the enthusiasm of our sponsors and a large group of professional volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to set up this event, acting as personal ambassadors for change and innovation.
