TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to ideas worth spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of locally organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. These local events are branded TEDx, where x = an independently organized TED event.
