joe says "tedx rise"

As an entrepreneur and businessman, Joe is always looking for bright new ways to innovate. There will be plenty of innovative ideas at TEDxDirigo. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience; TEDxDirigo was co-founded in 2010 as a world-class platform to celebrate innovation and creativity in Maine. In the same spirit of the state motto, TEDxDirigo leads the way with ideas from Maine’s brightest innovators and changemakers. The goal is for TEDxDirigo to be a catalyst for positive change in the state and world, where new ideas are supported for the greater good of all. Through the popular and effective TED Talk format, TEDxDirigo has inspired hundreds of live audience members and hundreds of thousands online across the globe.

This year's event will be held on November 4th at the State Theatre in Portland. Joe hopes to see you there!
