The idea to establish Amsterdam Made was created by a small group of local makers. Soon after the first steps were made there was a lot of interest in the project, which quickly garnered more than forty members. The initiative turned out to be a good fit for Amsterdam Council’s search for a business that would create and uphold a quality mark for products created or made in the metropolitan area of Amsterdam. Foundation Amsterdam Made is the only approved certifier of the quality mark, which was established to stimulate craftmanship and the local economy.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxBinnenhof, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBinnenhof events, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
