What is TEDxFortWayne?

An inspirational platform for connecting the great ideas and people of our community.

Our goal is to bring you the best our community has to offer, while injecting outside perspectives and encouraging you to make Fort Wayne better.

“Above all, try something!” -Franklin D. Roosevelt

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxFortWayne, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxFortWayne event, TEDTalks 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-organized.

This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.

What Others Have Said

I'd spend a day with passionate people any time.


I left inspired. That doesn’t always happen.


It packed more punch than I was expecting. The quality of the speakers were better than I expected.
