What is TEDx?
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. Our event is called TEDxWilmington, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxWilmington 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. For more about TED and TEDx: http://www.ted.com/tedx

Creators, catalysts, entrepreneurs, artists, technologists, designers, scientists, thinkers, and doers from Wilmington gather at TEDxWilmington events to share what they are most passionate about — positive ideas for the world and for Delaware.

Ajit George was granted the TEDx license in the fall of 2011 to organize the very first TEDxWilmington in August 2012. Based on the success of last year’s TEDxWilmington, his license to organize TEDxWilmington was renewed. the TEDxWilm team is in the process of planning a full day of programming with a combination of 12-15 live presenters and screening of TEDTalks videos, which we hope will spark deep conversation and connections.

Through TEDxWilmington, we want to introduce attendees to a world of new ideas — and foster rich and inspiring connections and conversations.
