TEDxSanAntonio is a community of creative and innovative minds and idea spreaders – and we welcome you to join us.
A primary goal of the TEDxSanAntonio community and program is to help innovative, creative people in San Antonio discover one another and cross-pollinate ideas across disciplines. We invite you to participate with our community in any and all of these four ways:
We have several events planned over the next few months. Most people get interested in TED and TEDx through watching talks online – but the real impact and value of a TEDx event is being there in person and discussing the ideas with others. Make sure you don’t miss the next opportunity by subscribing to our eNews updates.
Do you have a topic you’re on-fire passionate about? Consider putting a talk together and sharing it with our TEDxSanAntonio community. For our primary, large event, we invite talk proposals, and a dedicated all-volunteer committee reviews each proposal and selects talks to create a cohesive, cross-disciplinary day-long experience. For the 2013 event, we received over 200 talk proposals for the 20 available slots. Timing, themes, length — these all weigh in to the selection process.
We need great sponsors to put on these events. San Antonio is one of the largest cities in the United States, and our program reflects the unique, dynamic energy that drives our community. Our city benefits from having a world-class TEDx program in so many ways; making key connections between entrepreneurs and investors, inspiring and spreading new ideas, and showcasing what San Antonio has to offer the world. If your organization would like to get involved, please contact us.
TEDxSanAntonio events and the community are built on the efforts and skills of our dedicated, hardworking crew of volunteers. We work hard, and we have fun and make friends along the way. As a TEDxSanAntonio volunteer, you’ll work side-by-side with event planning, IT, and communications professionals from several well-known San Antonio companies and organizations. As you can imagine, ideas and innovation are a strong thread in this group. Attend one of the open “All Hands” volunteer meetings to get a taste of what we’re about.
This is your TEDx community, San Antonio – get involved and help us make it great.
