Impressions from TEDxOdense 2018

Visionary Partners 2018

We’re a Danish design studio, working in the realm of children, culture and society – converting complex communication and knowledge into tangible, immersive experiences. We create positive impact through design. Just like the TED organization, we deeply believe that real and lasting positive impact begins by welcoming people from every discipline and culture to seek a deeper understanding of the world – yet every single initiative around the planet takes root in the local community. In this case Odense. We cannot imagine not being part of TEDxOdense.

Christian Mogensen, Partner, Director of New Business

Orifarm Group is an ambitious operator in the European market for pharmaceuticals. An important contribution to our success is our curiosity and our will to try new things - a driving force that continues to bring our business forward. Since its foundation in 1994, Orifarm has grown from an entrepreneurial start-up with 3 employees to a successful company with 1,100 employees, every day working to achieve our mission of REthinking the business of healthcare. Rethinking is also what TEDx is about; to create a space for sharing ideas and to plant seeds that can grow to become new solutions to the challenges of tomorrow. This is why Orifarm is a proud visionary sponsor of TEDxOdense.

Eva Berner, Vice President, Corporate HR & Communication, Orifarm
