John D'Eri and Tom D'Eri are a father-and-son team that founded Rising Tide Car Wash, a social enterprise dedicated to providing gainful employment for people with autism in a premium car wash brand while simultaneously inviting the community to see the potential this talent pool has to offer. This business was inspired by watching John's other son, and Tom's younger brother, Andrew, struggle to find his place in the world as a person with autism. John and Tom hope to leverage this business to fundamentally shift the way society views autism and inspire other entrepreneurs to create a diverse ecosystem of opportunities where people with autism can thrive.
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)
