What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less.


What is TEDx?
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission of Ideas Worth Spreading. TEDx is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to bring people together to share a TED-like experience. 

What is TEDxNortheasternU?
TEDxNortheasternU is being created in the spirit of TED’s mission of Ideas Worth Spreading to Northeastern University. TEDxNortheasternU is designed to give a unique experience
of interdisciplinary talks and interactions
to the attendees. 

TED covers a variety of topics falling under the categories of
TED=Technology Entertainment and Design. TED is an internationally known organization with substantial influence
in these industries. TEDx brings new interdisciplinary ideas to new people and we want to support ideas worth spreading.
