In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a programme of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxBerlin SBI, where x = independently organised TED event.

At our TEDxBerlin SBI event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organised.
