When & Where
TEDxGreenville was the first independently organized TEDx event in South Carolina. It all started in 2010 when a diverse, passionate group of TED enthusiasts from around the community came together with the singular goal of bringing an educational and inspirational TED-like experience to Upstate residents.
The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences.
TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a free license granted by TED.
Now in its eighth year, the TEDxGreenville movement ignites passions and builds bridges like never before, while highlighting the incredible people and organizations that make the Upstate of South Carolina one of the best places to live on the planet. Yep, we said it. Drop the mic.
