TEDxFultonStreet is an independently operated, officially licensed, franchise of the world-famous TED Talks. This means that we follow the structure and spirit of TED, but the curation decisions are our own and all aspects of the production are handled by the volunteers of tedxfultonstreet.com/team. We operate under the fiscal sponsorship of Silver Squirrel Foundation, which is a federally recognized 501(c)3 not-for-profit based in New York City. The Board and Senior Management of TEDxFultonStreet accept no salary or compensation of any kind.
The original concept of Fulton Street, a street in Lower Manhattan which continues in Brooklyn, is that the parts were connected by one of Robert Fulton’s steamboats. We see it symbolically, as a manifestation of entrepreneurship, and a creative bridge between communities. Speaking literally, the downtown Manhattan area near Fulton Street is rich with technology, entrepreneurship, and designers — and the corresponding segment in Brooklyn is home to colleges and universities. These are our people: the students and the creators.
