Event Details

Ideas in Action begins tomorrow.    

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 the world's greatest challenges.      

Engage with us. 

The TEDxMileHigh 2013 (#TEDxMH13) theme "Values and Instincts" explores questions fundamental to human experience and existence. What do we think of when we consider the theme? Shared value. Killer instincts. Core values. What happens when our values and instincts align? What happens when they don’t? What can we trust? What’s the difference between a habit, an instinct and a preference – and why does it matter? What do we value in community? What instincts no longer serve us in our evolution as a species? What values can we rely on as humanity prepares for perhaps the most profound collective changes we’ve ever seen in our environment and societies?

Spread the word. 

Prepare to think, listen, act, converse, and be inspired. Thank you for your support---you are the reason TEDxMileHigh has been able to produce six quality events since 2011. Remember to get your tickets early - seats are limited and the event will sell out.  We are offering a block of discounted tickets at $59.50 through June 7 (or once the block is gone).  Ticket prices will then increase to $69.50 during the last week. As the true cost to produce the event is $100 per person, we want to thank our sponsors and donors for helping keep ticket prices low for attendees. Please share this invitation will friends and colleagues who are committed to spreading big ideas and promoting inspired citizenship within the community.  We look forward to seeing you June 15th!

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 20 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 10:00 a.m. for the launch of the second-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.
