TEDxLSU is the premier TEDx event in the greater Baton Rouge area. Launched in 2013, TEDxLSU is an intellectual and creative experience that brings local, regional, and statewide communities together in a way that enables them to imagine the possibilities, spur discussion and dialogue, and generate big ideas that will move the state of Louisiana forward. TEDxLSU participants, speakers, volunteers, and organizers come from all walks of life--business, non-profits, art, education, technology, and more.

TEDxLSU—like all TEDx events—is not organized for political reasons, monetary reward, or personal gain. Everyone associated with TEDxLSU does so because they believe in the power of ideas to ignite progress. TEDxLSU is financially supported by ticket sales and in-kind community partnerships. All funds generated through TEDxLSU go directly into sustaining the program.

About TED
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to “ideas worth spreading,” supporting world-changing ideas, connections, and dialogue. The two annual TED Conferences bring together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers who are challenged to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com.

About TEDx
TEDx events are independently organized to bring people together at local levels to share in a TED-like experience. Much like TED Conferences, TEDx events are centered on big ideas and inspiring talks intended to spark deep discussion and connection among participants. TEDx events are officially licensed events in which guidance, rules, and regulations are provided by TED.
