At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program.

I wrote the startup guide for entrepreneurs who are looking to start a company as well as those in the process of building one.
