Vahdat Hall

On The Verge of Breakthrough

Last year we spoke of Tehran En Route, and as a continuation of our journey, at the second TEDxTehran event we shared talks and thoughts on Tehran, its citizens and global community on the Verge of Breakthrough. On Friday September 26th, 2014 the second TEDxTehran was held at the amazing Vahdat Hall of Tehran, aiming to make a year of hope and anticipation of a breakthrough at an individual, community, economic, social, and technological dimensions. On TEDxTehran 2014 we invited our speakers to share their views on what sparks a breakthrough, what breakthrough can Iran share in technology, entertainment and design that are compelling for now and the future and what have been their personal experiences in the moment of a breakthrough.
