We have Michael Grema from the TEDx and Tech Startup Community on the podcast this week. After attending many TEDTalks he fell in love with the concept and mission and decided to bring TEDx to Las Vegas. Michael brought TEDxUNLV to Las Vegas in 2014 while he was a student at the University. After graduating he worked on creating TEDxLasVegas and is a main contributor of overseeing the integrity of the events.

Michael is involved in rebranding the Las Vegas city through incorporating more Tech and Entrepreneurship opportunities. He co-organized Las Vegas Startup Weekend and is heavily involved in TechStars and VegasTech.

In 2016, he was featured as MyVegas Magazine’s Top 100 Men of the Year.

  • I’ve found value from trying to learn something from everyone I encounter
  • Try to be actively minded and find things you can do better
