TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." The program is designed to give communities, organizations, and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. At TEDx events, a screening of TEDTalks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TEDTalks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis. For more information, visit http://www.ted.com/pages/about_tedx.

$1,000, $2,000 and $5,000 Sponsorships Still Available. For more information, please contact Nicole Novack nnovack@nyit.edu.
