TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference over 25 years ago where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, TED now supports the spread of world-changing ideas through a variety of initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to share their ideas in impactful talks delivered in 18 minutes or less. TED Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com, where they’re viewed over a million times per day by people around the globe.
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. At TEDx events, TED Talk videos and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
