14.02.13 - Peter Vogel, PhD Student with Prof. Marc Gruber has given a TEDx talk in Lausanne in january on entrepreneurship with the title "Empowering tomorrow's leaders to re-invent the labor market"

In his presentation, Peter Vogel explores the future of the labor market and the role of entrepreneurial ecosystems. The technological revolution not only changed the way we work and live, but who we are. The "Next Generations" are facing the highest youth unemployment rates and at the same time employers have entered a fierce competition for talents. This huge challenge can only be solved by the next generation itself, in re-defining the labor market of the future. Establishing assessable and healthy entrepreneurial ecosystems has to become priority #1 of policymakers and practitioners if we want to ensure that the terminology "Lost Generation" will always remain a piece of history.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations).
