A TED Talk is being organised in Suva which will see seven people speak on the subject of “Innovation and Entrepreneurship”.

Four speakers have been confirmed so far, which includes, the founder of The Greenhouse Studio, Maria Ronna, co-founder of TraSeable – Solutions, Shaunalee Katafono, environmentalist, youth advocate and founder of Precious Plastics Fiji – Ra'eed Ali and Weta Coffee Fiji's Mue Bentley Fisher.

Event organiser, Evlyn Mani says the committee decides on what is relevant and is a topic of discussion or if there are new ideas that people have not really heard of.

She says they try to bring these thought-provoking and inspiring ideas to stage.

Mani adds TED is a non-profit organization devoted to ideas worth spreading that was started in 1984 while TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together.

Other speakers will be confirmed later.

TEDxSuva is going to be held this Friday at the University of the South Pacific's AUSAID Lecture Theatre.
