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. In 2014, the conference grew from 100 attendees to 1,000+ and has featured speakers such as Vijay Kumar, Laura Sicola, Mark Rober, Jeff Beal, and Wren Weichman. Today, TEDxPenn Talks have amassed over 7.2 million views. The TED Organization provides general guidance, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At TEDxPenn, live speakers will spark deep discussion and connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised.
