Come along on a journey with TEDxLosGatos to celebrate and connect with status-quo challengers, original thinkers, outer-edge explorers, benders, breakers, paradigm shifters, and future shapers of every stripe.

What Is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxLosGatos, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxLosGatos event, 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.
