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.
TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Bono, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.

What is TEDxFrederiksberg?
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 TEDxFrederiksberg, where x = independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxFrederiksberg event, live TEDx speakers and TEDTalks videos combine to spark deep discussion and connection in our local community of Frederiksberg. While TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program individual, TEDx event like ours, are self-organized.
