TEDxUMN has a passion for bringing together the great thinkers at the University of Minnesota and giving them the opportunity to share their ideas worth spreading and discuss our shared future. We provide these great people the opportunity to share these ideas on a global stage and with an incredibly diverse audience. We believe in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately the world.
The entire organization is made up of dozens of other experienced, interesting, and passionate individuals. You will most likely get the chance to meet many of them at events and meetings. They do incredible work to make this entire event happen.
TEDx, in the spirit of ideas worth spreading, is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. 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.)
