About us


TEDxPenn was founded in 2010 by students to spark powerful ideas within the vibrant University of Pennsylvania and greater Philadelphia community to challenge ideas and create positive impacts for the world. Today, TEDxPenn Talks have amassed over 7.2 million views. 



Some of the most innovative improvements have come from using multidisciplinary approaches to solve seemingly impossible problems. Whether it's using literature and math or architecture and biology, inclusion can lead to eye opening discoveries.



All good ideas start from somewhere... whether the breakthroughs stem from an initial insight—or perhaps they were in sight the whole time, just waiting to be found. The real question is: where will they go next?

Stay in the loop.
