Event Details

"Harnessing energy at the edge of unlike things, emergent ideas are more than a clever premise, a fresh mashup, or diversity itself; emergent ideas categorically change how we see the world."

Ideas in action begins here.

Now in its tenth event, TEDxMileHigh is pleased to offer you an exclusive invitation to join 15 renowned Colorado innovators and changemakers who will share their big ideas and explore solutions to Colorado's (and the world's) greatest challenges. Engage with us. Let's turn ideas into actions.

Engage with us.

The TEDxMileHigh 2014 (#TEDxMH14) theme "Emergence," refers to patterns spontaneously arising from complex systems - new behaviors and properties that aren’t simply reducible to “the sum of it’s parts."

Emergence reveals new ideas for technology, talent, innovation and collaboration inspiring the Mile High region. Harnessing energy at the edge of unlike things, emergent ideas are more than a clever premise, a fresh mashup, or diversity itself; emergent ideas categorically change how we see the world. In structures, patterns, and properties that self-organize in complex systems we see true emergence; the big picture "now" unfolding from an unknown future.

What can we take from our observations of emergent patterns? Can we apply the lessons of emergence to create something truly greater than the sum of its parts?

TEDxMileHigh showcases Colorado's maverick thinkers and doers, big risk takers, big-time athletes, entrepreneurs and innovators, activists for the environment, humanitarians and many more extraordinary people who will each give the "talk of their life."  This event will include presentations from 15 of the state's leading thinkers and doers who will stimulate, educate, and enrich as they take a concise 3-15 minutes to describe how they have accomplished something big and share the lessons they learned in the process.

This will be an opportunity to engage in a discussion on transformation and innovation, as well as what it means to be an inspired citizen in a thriving Colorado community. 


Doors open at 11:00 a.m. for the launch of the third-annual TEDxMileHigh Exhibits Lounge, which will showcase technology demonstrations, product launches, ideation zones, as well as food, coffee and desert.  Session I of the program commences at 1:00 p.m. sharp.  During intermission from 3-4 p.m. attendees will have an opportunity to discuss the event and hit the Exhbiits Lounge.  The final session from 4-6 p.m. will be followed by a cocktail reception from 6-8pm for all attendees in the Exhibits Lounge.  Space is limited, so grab your ticket before they’re gone, gone, gone.
